Sky stories summer 2003

FTLComm - Saskatoon and Carrot River - July 16, 2003
Though an effort is made to find a certain balance in the topcis that are dealt with on this web site it seems the sky triumphs a lot of the time. As I am attempting to have some holiday this summer I have limited the number of stories I have been doing myself and just trying to keep up with the material that comes in from various contributors. But throughout the years we have returned to the dominant theme of the sky above and this collection of pictures need to be seen.

The first picture (top of this page) was taken Thursday afternoon from the site of the Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan site above the Saskatchewan River. The sky was filled with these fair weather cumulus clouds.

On Friday evening we came into the city from Pike Lake Provincial Park and the images shown below are in sequence as the Friday evening sky told of the complex weather system developing above us.

The next set of pictures were taken by Kevin McIntyre over at Carrot River as a serious disturbance rolled over his house and he capture the scene in this sequence of images.

Kevin sent these images over to his friend Doug Freestone who replied with a picture of his own that shows a storm on June 20th.
