The end of a thunderstorm:


A thunderstorm just getting going:




Later in the flight we flew directly alongside another jet's contrail, which was eerie to look at but too subtle for the iPhone's camera.

I love Oregon, but we just don't get the same cloudscapes here. Sometimes I miss those Maxfield Parrish skies.

I know exactly what you mean. I get all excited when a thunder storm rolls around here. It's a great treat.

Yeah, my roommate, awriter has been getting homesick for Illinois now that it's spring. "Where are the thunderstorms? Where are the tornadoes?" she despairs. We look at her funny for the last one, but I understand. For me, Washington seriously just wouldn't be the same without the minute threat of being buried under a boiling hot lahar. People's sense of identity can be strange.

Depends upon where you are in the state. The Blue Mountains as well as the Ochocos and Wallowas can produce some seriously awesome cloudscapes, and looking west at sunset from the uplands (Zumwalt Prairie) north of Enterprise over the Wallowas can be rather intense.

Then there's the thunderstorm we drove through from Bend to Enterprise one year...and the thunderstorms in the Wallowas every afternoon.

There's one shot from a horse blog--Life in the Rough String--that's based over in Harney County that has a truly amazing distance shot of a snowstorm over a desert lake, about five miles off.
