We had a storm sweep through last night – lots of rain and lightning, but oddly, no wind.
These two photos were taken .04 seconds apart.
My older daughter and I went into the sun room to watch, and there were many times when the yard was suddenly bright as day!
I tried to take video as well, and have one that I will upload later. It’s a lot darker than what we were actually seeing, but still shows how much lightning we were getting.
I did a walk around the yard before driving my younger daughter to work, and was amazed by the complete lack of downed branches. Usually, any stiff wind will at least send willow branches flying. Not a one!
Which I am grateful for. This morning, I learned that a tornado touched down to the south of us, and at least one home was torn from its foundation.
We have much to be thankful for here. The brunt of storms always seems to pass our area by.
Update: I have since learned that the tornado touched down to the northwest of us, on the other side of another lake. One person was found dead next to his destroyed home. 😦
