After the storm

The past few days have been hot. The air has been heavy and still. Tonight, just after dinner, the wind came up and the sky grew dark. The rumblings of thunder began and suddenly we were in the middle of a very loud thunder and lightning storm. At one point there was a crack of thunder so loud and so close, I felt teh house shake! The skies opened up and there was torrential rain. And then, almost as quickly as it began, it was over. The air was cool, and the clouds looked like this. 








Aren't they beautiful? It's like getting a little peek at heaven, isn't it?

  1. I know, great storm wasn't it?

    I was walking into Superstore just after it finished and stopped to look at the clouds too. They were incredibly amazing - I'm so glad you captured a glimpse of them here.

  2. I love the look of thunder clouds before and after - especially when they give you a beautiful sunset!!! We had a quick storm here today too! So many this year!!!
