Sunday Skies

We watch from the North Rim of The Grand Canyon

as a monsoon storm dumps some much needed

rainwater on the San Francisco Peaks and Flagstaff.

 

Congratulations to the U.S. & G.B. Olympic Teams

for Kicking A** in Rio!!!  And to all the incredible

athletes just for making it... And thanks to Brazil

for getting it done!    YAY WORLD!

I like this Elizabeth, the scope is so wide

Agreed about the Olympic medals, it's been great!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Chris!
Very nice indeed Elizabeth! I quite like the clouds.

What a wonderful place to watch that storm and knowing that Flagstaff is getting "washed".

Team GB's performance in the Olympics is incredible; a tiny little country beating China! It;s all down to funding through our national lottery. It's a shame that the Paralympics sounds like it has to be downscaled due to Brazil's problems.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh yes - I could sit there forever and watch the weather!

Yes - I think your tiny little country has so much to be proud of, for so many reasons! Too bad about the Paralympics... :-(
We are amazed how well we have done! Beating our medals total in London exceeded anybody's expectations.

Agree with Alan that it is a shame about the Paralympics

Nice sky!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It's quite impressive for your "tiny little country"!

Thank you!
I like the simplicity of this, Ell', I hope we see it again one day, rain or not! smile Yes, the olympics have been so good, if tiring...smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, My Love! Of course we'll see it again - rain or shine!
That is a gorgeous scene and I love seeing that rain. Canada did well in the Olympics, beating their medal total from London.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Mary!
Congratulations to the Canadians then, also!!!
This is a fine sky picture and the with great rain clouds. Both our nations have done well haven't they, and still today's events to go. You and your husband now have two nations to support in whatever sport event is taking place of course!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Brian!
Yes - it's been a very exciting Olympics! I do feel a bit bi-National! smile
Dramatic!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it!! smile
The rain must have been very welcome, I guess.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh yes - I just LOVE the rain! Frank just laughs at that - though he understands!
