Lantern Asia

Lantern Asia is a recreation of Chinese Lantern Festivals, a tradition in China that is over 2,000 years old.  The lights were exhibited in the Norfolk Botanical Garden during March & April of 2016 along a mile long walking path.

Roll Cloud

Saw this Roll Cloud out of my office window this morning.  Roll clouds can be caused by downdrafts associated with thunder storms (and you can see rain on the left side of the picture).  The forecast is calling for lots of rain later this afternoon & evening, and all day tomorrow.  Some parts of the area could see up to four inches of the wet stuff!

From Wikipedia: A Roll Cloud is a low, horizontal, tube-shaped, and relatively rare type of arcus cloud. They differ from shelf clouds by being completely detached from other cloud features. Roll clouds usually appear to be "rolling" about a horizontal axis. They are a solitary wave called a soliton, which is a wave that has a single crest and moves without changing speed or shape.

The Morning Sun

Opened up the door to my office this morning and was greeted by a glorious site - the sun rise streaming perfectly through the blinds in my window!  You know it's going to be a good day when it starts off like this!
