Summer thunderstorms

Thunder and lightning by sammyj3693 (Photobucket)

After several days of triple-degree temperatures, a thunderstorm (not nearly so dramatic as the one pictured) developed right over our area this evening. We heard it approaching, then, within 10-15 minutes, it was directly overhead. It’s a vigorous storm – a rather close crack made me jump as I was typing this – but not a violent one; the rain is steady but not a deluge. Despite the sudden uptick in humidity, it’s a welcome relief from the swelter that had dominated the weather this week (this entire summer, in fact; not only did we track in Michigan’s winter, we also brought Arizona’s summer when we moved back here last year). I love summer thunderstorms in the South.
