Like some high-school production of Wagner, thunder and lightning and rain passed over this area last night. The constant flickerings in the sky seemed somehow over-done and juvenile. I stood outside and watched transfixed ... who needs Fourth of July fireworks when nature can provide such a show without ever reaching for its wallet?
After the lightning show, the thunder and rain strode in, furious and loud.
Today the air is crisp and everything seems refreshed and clean.
