The Power of Nature

Last night we were treated to a display of the awesome power of nature. We had one of the biggest thunderstorms this area has ever seen. The thunder literally shook the bed and created an unbelievable noise, terrifying Bush Boy in the process. Once he was safely in our room though, he couldn’t help but be fascinated with the lightening display. At times the room lit up as bright as fluorescent lighting, and the mountains were visible as clear as if it were daytime. There were two storm fronts, one to the south and one to the west, both of which passed over us and both of which we could see from our hillside vantage point. The rain was so hard that there is dirt splashed from my garden across the walkway to the front door.

The whole town is buzzing about the late night event, something to be talked about for years to come.
