texas skies

This was the early morning view from our bedroom in Alpine this morning - we'd had a pretty sleepless night, since one of eastern Texas's thunder clusters parked itself over the town in the middle of the night, drenching it, with lightning and thunder right overhead (no pictures of this, you ask?  it was so close that I didn't wan't to stand near the windows).  Then another storm came through ...

but had departed by the time we were the far side of Marfa.

Back home in Santa Fe (the usual dramas for this time of year - a sparrow poking its vicious head out of the bluebird house; too many clothes moths around;  I stood on a cactus that went sharply straight through my shoe sole), the skies were, for a rare occasion, tame.
