I don't think we're in Kansas anymore!

Some big thunderstorms came through this evening around suppertime. Lots of crashing and booming, which of course scared the dickens out of me. There was also some hail mixed in with the rain. You could hear it rattling now and then against the windows. As you can imagine, I didn't eat supper on schedule. Instead I jumped up into Mike and Jeannie's bed and hunkered down between them.

As the storms blew through I thought they might take our house with them. But in spite of the racket, all we ended up with was this rainbow strike on our chimney:

Hi Buddy,

Consider how lucky you are to have a couple of nice humans to give you some security.

You're right to be afraid of lightning as it can do tremendous damage especially when it hits a power line. In the rain forest in West Africa I've seen a 12 foot diameter mahogany tree just ripped right down the middle. Of course it's no consolation to yours susceptible ears that the thunder isn't really what does the damage. By the way that's a nice rainbow. Dave
