A Perfect Summer's Day

This morning is positively gorgeous out there!
Sunny, Clear, Cool, Breezy.

This is the beautiful weather after the storm, only, the storm was pretty weird here.
We had a tropical downpour in the afternoon, but that was pretty much it for precipitation.
Last night the sky was full of clouds and the colors yellow, orange, pink radiated through the cloud formations as sunset mover to dusk, and elsewhere the storms brought rain, wind, and damage, but here they brought nothing but beautiful cloud formations and colors.
The local internet was absolutely full of pictures of the sky folks were taking.
You can't tell New Englanders are obsessed with weather!
