Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “In my dream I was standing on the bank of the Nile, when out of the river there came up seven cows, fat and sleek, and they grazed among the reeds. After them, seven other cows came up—scrawny and very ugly and lean. I had never seen such ugly cows in all the land of Egypt. The lean, ugly cows ate up the seven fat cows that came up first. But even after they ate them, no one could tell that they had done so; they looked just as ugly as before. Then I woke up.

For the second night in a row I dreamed of being with two of my remaining co-workers. I was visiting them both as they lived adjacent each other in the country, and we had just finished a meal and were sitting outside on the deck under a gorgeous blue sky when I became fascinated by quickly-gathering white altocumulus clouds started forming from the right and moving to the left in an intricate dance of surreal eddies and waves like a three-dimensional saw-toothed cutout ocean set from a Gilbert and Sullivan opera.

I pulled out my Blackberry to photograph these amazing clouds when just as suddenly these even puffier charcoal gray clouds appeared from the right, arrow shaped and penetrating into, and overtaking the white clouds. I was awe-struck by the contrast between the white ever-moving clouds and the stark enormity of the gray clouds. I was frustrated that I couldn't quickly change the exposure settings on my Blackberry's camera in order to get a proper bracketed shot and was cursing myself for not bringing my camera. The gray clouds overtook the white clouds quickly - before my second shot, and I stared up at the darkness of the sky with fear and wonder.

Gathering or black clouds in your dream may suggest real-life feelings of apprehension. Gray clouds denote despondence, but white clouds symbolize contentment....To dream of a blue sky brings good luck. If the sky is bright, it suggests joy and the prospect of respite of worries, but if the sky is dark is can suggest a mood of gloom and hardship.

Because one was overtaken by the other, I don't have a good feeling about this foreshadowing - etymological pun intended.
