Driving through the Texas countryside has always been scenic and peaceful. I expect to see lovely rolling hills, a variety of trees, horses, cows, and occasionally a sculpture made out of bales of hay. Saturday I saw something I didn't expect - Armageddon. Well, okay, it wasn't really Armageddon, but it looked strange enough to make me wonder. It was an insanely bright day with the winter sky blanketed by cirrocumulus clouds, complete with herringbone patterns and puffy cotton balls, a long line of unbelievably intense blue sky was visible through an unzipped portion of clouds, the sun burned through the thin clouds making a huge white disc overhead, and there was a peculiar hole in the sheet of clouds with a haze inside veiling the entrance to heaven. It was an awesome sight.
And of course, I must include my tweaked version...Armageddon
