Thunderstorm

What a dazzling display of lightning last night about 7:15! The sky darkened as storm clouds rolled in, and sand danced down the lane as if trying to outrun the wind and rain. Kyle and Paige joined us on the pizer to watch the spectacle. It was quite a show.

But the storm passed by as quickly as it appeared. By 8:00 the skies were clearing, and we walked down the lane to enjoy the fresh scent of damp sand and cedars. And there, up above my house, was a stunning double rainbow.

Lou Ann took the photo, but the second rainbow was fading by then.
