Cloudy SkyWatch Friday

"Cielo a pecorelle, acqua a catinelle"




This typical Italian expression reads:
If you see fleecy sheep-shaped clouds in the sky, expect it to rain in sheets.




This photo does not portray the quintessential Italian cielo a pecorelle, but it's close. This is what the sky looked like yesterday. And I have my umbrella ready, just in in case.

  1. Just gorgeous! So windy here today, and overcast. Kind of sleepy, non-motivational weather!

  14. Thank you for your lovely comments, everyone!

    It eventually only rained a total of 10 raindrops this afternoon here in Rome. The sheepy clouds continued to chace each other overhead, and I am counting them as I shift from desk to bed, finally. Good night and have a good weekend, my dear friends.

  18. Great picture.
    After over a week of fantastic weather we have rain, and cold and wind, it feels more like winter out there.
