I’ve really enjoyed the clouds lately in Spokane, WA.
Here’s one of my photos from Volume last year in a story about some of the venues in town that help make the music scene as successful as it is. Volume is a two day music festival held in Spokane, WA, organized by the Inlander, a newspaper I photograph for. http://www.inlander.com/spokane/rise-and-fall/Content?oid=2466693
Spokane Public Schools and East Valley School District teachers held a one day walkout due to a lack of legislative education funding. Teachers and supporters gathered at various intersections throughout Spokane, WA, before meeting at Riverfront Park, in the downtown area. Here is a slideshow of my coverage: http://m.inlander.com/spokane/teacher-walkout/Slideshow?oid=2467827.
Clouds built up as a thunderstorm approached this afternoon. This morning, the clouds were going west to east. This afternoon, they are approaching from the east. So, the storm must be passing by.
Here’s an extra photo of Joe Johnson, owner of Beautiful Grounds, for a story about nitro coffee. The coffee is surprisingly very smooth and void of most of the tannins associated with regular coffee. I normally add sugar and cream to my coffee but was able to easily drink nitro coffee without adding anything.

While spending some time with family today, there was some rain damp wood to split for the fire pit. It was tough going with an ax because of the moisture. Rather than split a whole bunch by hand, my uncle Joe brought out his splitter. It’s a pretty cool tool to split a whole bunch of wood quickly. Sometimes, technology wins over hand tools.
Here’s one of my nieces bringing a log to be split.
Here’s a portrait of Kerri Wilfong for this week’s Inlander story about the Coeur d’Alene Arts and Culture Alliance. To read more about her and her organization, go to http://www.inlander.com/spokane/a-heart-for-art/Content?oid=2462318
