A huge thunderhead towered over the Cooperative Elevator's eight story tall towers this afternoon. I followed this cloud across the county as I headed east from Pigeon to Harbor Beach. By Bad Axe the skies had thickened. By Verona, there was rain and by the time I turned south off of M-142 at the Parisville Road corner, the skies were blue again.
The white two story building at the far left is Main Street Cafe and Bakery, home of the best homemade potato chips ever. The brown one story building is the Pigeon Village Hall and also houses Winsor Township's offices.
Here's the same cloud with a wind turbine in the photo. I like the contrasts -- strong, definitive tower lines, graceful arc of the blades, and the puff of the storm clouds. This photo was taken along Richardson Road, between Pigeon and Elkton.
