Spectacular Weather Front At GlenMar Ranch, Caddo, OK

New construction in Caddo, Oklahoma

April sunset on GlenMar Ranch in Caddo, OklahomaFriday afternoon the Colonel picked me up at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. 

Tucson was cold when I boarded the plane at 6:45 a.m., much colder than it had been only a day ago.  It was raining in Dallas when we landed, but as we drove up Interstate 75 and crossed the Red River into Oklahoma, the sky was clearing to the west.  To the east, however, that squall line you see above was forming as the sun set in the west.

The Colonel, retired USAF, spent a career flying military transports around the globe.  Looking out the window to the east, he commented that he'd never seen a cloud formation like this one.  The eastern sky was painted by the rays of the setting sun.  Here's the whole panorama.

On Saturday, we worked 150 cows, bulls and calves.  Nobody got hurt, so it was a great day on the ranch.
