The Power of Nature

Today, we finally had a thunderstorm with some decent rain in North Texas. It hasn’t been raining for quite some time. And we are back into the drought again, this Summer. I’m always fascinated what an amazing light show Mother Nature provides for us at moments like these. In the South, the lightning can be wicked. But it is stunning as well. Here is a photo of a powerful lightning strike, I’ve witnessed in early August 2013:

Storm Clouds After Sunset

When I called in Katelynn and Sara for the night, the girls pointed out the cloud east of us. “Mom, we get a storm tonight. It’s lightning and thundering”, Katelynn said. The storm cloud looked so cool, I had to get my camera and shoot a few photos.
