the sky in DC today just before tornado warning was cancelled

Today I rode the bus to downtown Washington DC just before the tornado warning was cancelled. This was the sky before the clouds dissipated (and *whew* -- I don't exactly want to be trapped in a metal box when a twister furiously rips out of the sky!)
Pennsylvania Avenue NW (across from
Department of Justice & Archives/Navy metro stop)
Forbidding clouds behind the basilica of the
National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception
,
the biggest Catholic Church in the world
(it also serves as a church for Catholic University
which is across the street).
Low dark clouds as seen from bus
This was on North Capitol Street NW.
I liked the way the rooftops looked against the menacing sky.

past few months in photos

Okay, I've been posting sporadically lately. Here are my past few months, in pictures:

Heat FAIL.
That was the night I bought THIS awesome little space heater.

Fired a rifle for the first time.

Giant disembodied head at the
Museum of Natural History's BRAIN exhibit, NYC


U.S. Capitol at sunset - I took this with my phone and didn't add
any effects except for the border. I love this shot because of the warm light.




It flurried and (it appears) this triggered a bout of
amoebic dysentery for the ENTIRE TOWN.
Barely any toilet paper to be found.
