|Storm clouds approaching from Canoe|
But every day, as 4:30 approaches, I am reminded of the opening theme from The Flintstones, where the sqwak of the bird signals the end of the work day!
|Two wheels, ready for the workday to begin!|
|Still a few hints of blue over Sicamous|
But as we worked to unload the kiln, we could see dark clouds rolling in from the direction of Canoe.
|We could see lightning on the other side of Bastion|
Soon, we saw a few lightning strikes on the other side of Bastion Mountain.
Those strikes that we didn't see, we certainly could hear!
It was delicious sitting under the porch, feeling the wind blowing in, hearing the thunder, knowing the rain was falling on the other side of the lake, and wondering when it would arrive on our side.
Here is a little video clip so you can see the spread of weather across the horizon.
|adding underglaze under the porch!|
But Tonia, Janet and I were happily occupied under the deck, safe from the rain, listening to groovy tunes on Satellite radio.
Tonia sat at one wheel throwing pots, while Janet and I sat putting wax resist and under-glaze on our newly bisqued bowls, mugs, and pendants.
|clouds headed up the river|
We all took turns reflecting on the delicious smell, mostly as a saucy way of using the word "Petrichor" in a sentence (since we all recently learned that this is the correct word to describe the smell of a long-awaited rainfall).
|And the sun comes back.|
Could there be a more perfect evening?!
|Hey! It looks like the sun is wearing sunglasses....|
