Summer thunder storms

I love it when we have a thunder storm, and they are even more exciting during the summer. Yesterday I was about to take the trash out (remember we live in an apartment, so it's across the lot) when I noticed it starting to sprinkle. I had just opened the door. I thought, well, I should be able to make it, it's just sprinkling. But I saw a rainbow, and it was pretty bold, and almost complete, so I thought I'd take a picture first. I took a few pictures (they never turn out as vivid as in real life) and then... the heavens opened and hail thundered down so thick and fast! I was so glad I didnt' go out, I would've gotten knocked out probably! It was really loud, especially because of the tin carport covers. The picture of the hail on the ground is such a sad disapointment of how it really was. Anyway, lots of thunder, lightening, and loud hail and rain. It was great!


You can barely see a second rainbow in this picture.

Great Pics! I loved the storm last night too! The sky was AWESOME. I took some pictures too. The rainbow was cool. Hopefully it won't rain on us while we are at camp.

Rain is one of my favorite things to watch and smell- ever. We usually get rain here in August for Monsoons and then in the winter time. So it doesn't happen too often here and I miss it!

Cool pictures- love the rainbow!!
