Thunderstorms & Lightning

After breaking heat records this past week I think we were all in shock over yesterday's weather. Thunder, lightning, and rain! And when I type rain I mean BIG TIME! Wow I haven't seen it come down that hard for a long time.


The sky over Lillooet was quite pink at quarter past nine last night:


And about 15 minutes later:

The gutters on our house looked as if I had laid out garden hoses full blast on the roof! On the plus side everything sure got a good soaking :)

Hey Lady! I know you must be super busy right now with garden and home projects! I just wanted you to know that I was given an award, which I have passed on to you! You are an inspiration to me and have taught me all kinds of neat things in the year and a half (almost - has it really been that long???) since I've known you, so I felt you deserved it! =)

Take care! Donna

Gorgeous photos. We got rain here too and it has been cool and rainy ever since. I hope that changes soon.
