A Drive Through a Cloud


These are some more photos from a day on the Blue Ridge Parkway last year when when we drove through a storm cloud.


The Blue Ridge mountains are tall enough that when the storm clouds descend, the mountain tops become engulfed in the cloud.

As we drove along, a storm rolled in and began to settle above us. It wasn't long before it completely surrounded us!


The sight was amazing, but there was no room to safely pull over and snap pictures. So I stuck my camera out the car window as we cruised along through the mist. 
My camera has been though a lot.


The storm was fast moving, so it never blinded us completely. But there were a few scary moments where we could hardly see!



Something silly happened while the storm was approaching.. My hair started standing up!!  The electricity in the air maybe? It was strange. 


We almost didn't drive up to the mountains this day because of the impending storm, but I am so glad we did!
