One area in which the East Coast buries the Pacific Northwest is storms. I’ve seen more interesting clouds in my 2 weeks here than I had in months of Vancouver’s rather laid back weather. Living right below the rooftop might imply searing heat at times but it sure guarantees easy access to the best views. I haven’t even explored the actual roof yet, these were all taken from the terrace, at various stages of the storm – and of our lovely evening.

Finding strong similarities with Marie’s post? Well, these were after all – and for the first time in many moons – the same clouds photographed from the same vantage point. Hallelujah!

"Beautiful clouds with very temperamental weather, whirling in and out, with lashings of heavy rain, splashes of lightning, boiling thunder and then bursts of ragged sunlight…"
