I took this photo while out on my morning walk with my little Point and Shoot camera that I carry in my pocket with me while on my daily walks this past Friday, March 2, 2012. Who would’ve thought, from looking at this beautiful sky, that just hours later, three of the most deadliest tornadoes in over 60 years would come ripping through the area, leveling towns and cities and claiming lives? And, then, yesterday…just a few days later…we had almost 3 inches of snow and black ice in the morning—-all of it GONE by afternoon! Mother Nature at her finest!

Photo taken near Rising Sun, Indiana.
