Recently we had a series of Severe Lightning and Thunder Storms. We are lucky in the Mountains as the rugged terrain slows down the fury of these storms. We have been blessed by the rain from these boiling grey clouds, while ducking the staggering light shows that comes with cold air colliding with moist warm air from the Gulf of Mexico. Last night we had five hours of continuous lightning that lit up the sky. Storms can be a source of damage but they are also a powerful display of Nature's awesome energy. With definite respect we watch their spectacular displays.
