Thunderstorm Warning… me of Rysa?

2015-07-07 rainstorm 2

2015-07-07 rainstorm 1

“Bang!  Crash!  The lightning flashed!  And– well, that’s another story, never mind.”

The rain only lasted about 10 minutes.  I love it when the sun comes out while it’s raining – it looks like diamonds falling from the sky!
