Midday cumulus congestus clouds build above the Green Mountains.
Midday cumulus congestus clouds build above the Green Mountains.

This midday shot looks south from a favorite hillside about a mile from our house. The hayfield and cows (spots of brown…) are owned by the Taft family, one of just a handful of working farmers in the Huntington River Valley. With all wet and stormy weather we’ve been having recently, these kinds of clouds have been a frequent sight as the heat of the day piles them up along the higher terrain. Some build into cumulonimbus clouds dumping rain and flashing lightning.
