Heaven's Fireworks

Last night around 8:30pm, I started noticing lightning in the skies. It wasn't much at first, but within half an hour, it was getting worse and worse. And cooler and cooler. It got really bad and very bright at some points, which made me get off the computer and just watch the lightning from my dark computer room window. I am always amazed at thunder and lightning. I love the storms, except when they cause damage, of course! I had never seen a lightning storm like last night, though. At 1am, when I was finally dozing in bed, it was STILL going off. I couldn't believe that almost 5 hours later we were still getting the lightning!! We have chances of thunderstorms for most of this week, but I am pretty sure I won't ever see a night of heaven's fireworks like that again, at least not for awhile.

It is awesome and yet frightening to see the power of lightning.

When I was growing up, my mother always made sure we unplugged the television and microwave when lightning was in the area. We never used the phone at those times either. One year it struck one of the old trees in the front yard not ten feet from a huge propane tank. The tree lived, but it had a deep scar that took years to heal. Lightning is deadly yet beautiful.

Lighting storms can be amazing, but they always make me nervous too. My aunt and cousin were both hit by it and so was my grandparents house - twice! I guess I just worry I come from a very "electrifying" family, lol

I lived on a farm many years ago and used to watch the lightning hit the fields at night. It was scary and spectacular to watch Mother Nature in her fury and power! She has a way of humbling us lowly humans.

Colleen, love the picture. I love storms too except when they start fires out here in Nevada. And they scare the bejebars out of our dogs. I guess that I should slip them a vicodin when it starts. Love the smell of the rain and how it clears the air.

Stay safe Colleen.
