This is the only word that can be used to describe the weather front that moved in last night. Looking up as i departed VA, the weather front divided the nearly clear azure blue sky with a sinister black wave of clouds. It was incredible. you could see nearly the entire storm front, a diagonal line of evil weather coming from the WSW. If only I had my camera. It got even more interesting. As i crossed the Memorial Bridge, the whole river was covered in the black from the storm, but the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument were still under the pale blue sky. I have never wanted to stop my car in its tracks and take a photo more than right then. but alas, commitment to safety won out.

We really needed the rain, and thankfully, my newly planted grasseed was not washed away.
