WOW! As I sat at my desk in the 2nd floor converted sunporch of my office building yesterday (a wall of windows on three sides), the sky went dark and lightning started to flash…suddenly I was treated to a big ol’ mid summer thunderstorm…up close and personal. At the height of it, lightning struck somewhere very close and the thunder BOOMED right afterwards. Didn’t lose power and the violent aspect of the storm moved on, leaving us with drenching rain. Then last night, as I left my board meeting, the lightning started again. Not a lot of thunder, but a steady, theatrical display of lightning…a cosmic light show. It continued into the night and more of these intense little storms are forecast for today. I think my gardens are finally going to get that good drenching they craved.
