I had read earlier this week that if you sprayed a layer of lacquer on a globe, it would represent the thickness of our atmosphere relative to the mass of the planet. Yet it is within that very thin layer of air that powerful forces flow.

It’s been a weird spring and summer in these here parts. Very cool and wet spring followed by a very mild but wet and stormy summer. My lawn loves it. The mosquitoes love it. Anyone living along the Fox River hates it.

This was taken last weekend as yet another series of storms rolled through northern Illinois. More turbulence in our layer of air is on its way today and tomorrow.

That itty bitty layer of air also makes for some good photography.
