Not Your Every Day Egyptian Sky
Ninety-five percent of the time, the skies here in Egypt are cloudless and blue. (That is besides the pollution.) But, a couple of nights ago I shot these pictures from my balcony. The clouds were rolling in and the lightening was beautiful. Unfortunately, there was no thunder. It is very rare to see rain clouds and lightening and hear thunder here. One can actually go a year or more without them. Ever since that night, it has been cloudy off and on, the air is getting cooler, and it has even rained pretty hard a time or two. It is nice to finally have a break from the constant heat. The top picture is what the sky usually looks like, then the bottom two are the rain clouds moving in.
