The clouds rolled in. August 2012.
There is something about an evening summer rainstorm that is so exhilarating. As the daylight fades, the menacing clouds heavy with rain roll in, promising an exciting show. Over the weekend we had that perfect summer storm that boomed and crackled and lit up the fading sky. I captured these pictures just before the skies opened up and poured down rain. And then I sat at the window and enjoyed the stormy theatrics from my front row seat.
Do you know any old wives' tales about thunder-and-lightening storms? My grandma used to tell us that you never did the following things during a wild summer storm: Don't take a bath. Don't use an appliance that plugs into the wall. And don't stand near a window. Whoops. Sorry, Grandma. I couldn't help myself.
