I worked through lunch yesterday so that I could leave early and meet some old friends for supper. We haven't gotten together for about 3 years.
|First Hail of 2017|
The electricity went out at 4:07 as lightening flashed and thunder boomed close enough to rattle the house. Luckily the hail here stayed small. A few miles down the road it was reported as golf ball sized and larger.
|The backside of thunderstorms and tornadoes|
I left at 4:25 and turned around just past the neighbors driveway. In that short distance the street went from a light rain to heavy rain and hail! We were on the edge of the storm. (Under the rainbow.) I waited about 15 more minutes to to allow the storm to pass.
|Rainbow over the lake|
I saw some beautiful views on the drive. Including a rainbow out my left window as an eagle flew towards me out the right window. When I got out of my car at the bridge to take a picture of the rainbow, a flock of birds flew under the rainbow.
|Rainbow and Geese|
In memory of my mother, "Somewhere under the rainbow, geese fly North .... confused by the warm weather they've lost their formation." (She often started singing a song and made up her own words.)
