Thunderstorms are relatively common in the warmer months where I live. Sometimes they come with Severe Weather Watches or Warnings and can cause significant damage, but most of the time they are a source of both moisture and entertainment. The trees on my property are small and the land relatively flat so we have an excellent view of the sky.
This picture was taken about two weeks ago.
That particular batch of cloud passed northeast of us. (A different group of clouds rained on us later.)
These photos were taken last Sunday night as the sun was setting, and after a storm had moved past us.
Tonight’s flick provides one of the safest possible ways to enjoy weather watching: through someone else’s camera lens from the comfort of your chair. Mike Olbinski has produced a lovely storm video that reminds the viewer that nature is always beautiful, even when it is destructive.
