Where Storms Are Born
One very interesting thing about where we live is watching storms form. A majority of our summer showers form in the late afternoon as the temperature starts to drop. Most of the severe storms are formed very close to our home and then build as they travel east and southeast. The moisture of the Mississippi River and the Wisconsin River play a huge influence on our weather patterns. I love watching the clouds build. This cloud appeared during a short walk one afternoon. We are currently experiencing rain from the remnants of Hurricane Gustav. We can usually expect a day or two or rain when a hurricane travels north through the Gulf of Mexico. Southwestern Wisconsin has had very little rain this August. It is a welcome sight!
My name is Chris Daly. I am a quilter and stained glass artist that loves bold colors. Sewing and needle arts have always been a part of my life. I have been dyeing garments for 20 years. I started dyeing quilting fabrics 5 years ago when I had a hard time finding the colors I wanted for my projects. I live in rural Wisconsin with my husband and occasionally my college age son.
