The lightening and thunder moved off to the southeast and took most of the rain with them. After checking weather radar we headed out for a walk just in time to see the back end of the front sliding by. Emergency weather reports would have had us stay inside for a while longer, I am sure. But then we would have missed a sky that made me dream of being part of a Marc Chagall painting. (Click to see his "Song of Songs.")
The storm left a spectacular, cloudy sunset that was reflected in sidewalk and gutter rain puddles. And that brings me back to my previous post. These are photos taken in a very ordinary neighborhood.
There are spectacular places to visit, and any time you have the opportunity to travel, take it. But there is also spectacular in the most ordinary places.
Here are (just a few) of my images after the storm.
