Late Night Thunderstorm

It's really hard to get a pic of a lightning strike! But I managed to get this one of poor quality from the living room window at about 11pm last night. The girls were huddled together and not in their shelter. The puppies were panting and drooling over our heads in bed most of the night which made it difficult to sleep. Little Lilliput cat will hide in the bathroom under the old claw foot tub. Finally everyone settled down and Stephen slept right the way through it!

I'd say that's a pretty good picture. we have been having some odd weather here too with lightning and thunderstorms. The dogs are crazy,hiding under tables, drooling etc.. too. Of course, my Steve sleeps through anything too, how do they do that?

mrs mom, If you enlarge it, you can see the bolt. I was suprised to see that!

Arlene, They do sleep through anything. Is it a Steve thing or just a man thing, LOL!

I have friends who are professional photographers and I'm pretty sure they take their lightning strikes on timed photos. At least that's what I remember one of them telling me. But then he was famous for his pics with multiple strikes. lol Can you tell I'm not a photographer.

We had lightning here last week and it was very scary. I was really glad it didn't strike any of our buildings. It was definitely close enough.
