Thunder Threat

Storm Clouds Brewing Over Lake Weir.

The weekend lake cruise had to be cut short by threatening clouds. While boating in the rain might be manageable, the attendant lightning would not. We cut short the tour and sped back to the boat shed and home. Light drops sprinkled as we made our way into the house. Moments later great torrents rattled the roof and trees but, fortunately the lightning and thunder were sparse.

A couple of hours, and two and a half inches of rain later, the clouds finally rained themselves out, and a more tranquil sky appeared well before sunset. The storm had revived the parched ground and freshened the air, but had not dampened our spirits nor the fireworks display later that evening.
