In early July I was in the northern lands of Michigan, heading even further north toward the Straits of Mackinac. That morning I drew a daily line of three Lenormand cards. I can't remember what the first in the line was, but the latter two were Mountain - Clouds. Neither of them are particularly positive cards, and Clouds are considered the most negative card in the deck! However it was a daily draw, so it didn't concern me too much… Lenormand dailies can often be literal. Most of our ride was going to be on relatively flat land, but toward the end of our journey I knew we'd be entering into some hilly terrain. I decided that Mountain - Clouds likely referred to the possibility that we would encounter rain at that point in our trip. I left it at that, we packed up, and departed.

Most of the ride was bright and sunny, so I started to think that my rain forecast might be a bit off. However for nearly our entire voyage, a low line of clouds accompanied us on the horizon. It was pretty magnificent, and at some point one of my daughters exclaimed: "Those clouds look like mountains!" Ah hah! She was completely right. Those clouds looked exactly like snow-covered mountains in the distance. There were my Mountain - Clouds!
We continued our drive, and I noticed that as we reached the last thirty minutes of our trip, those clouds started to stretch out, and reach over us. As we rose and descended, and wove through the newly developing northern hills, the sun disappeared and the rain started to fall.
There were my Mountain - Clouds…again!
