Lightning Show

On the 2nd of August, we had a thunder and lightning storm that lasted for seven hours, the longest one we’ve witnessed since we moved to Perry’s Point (nearly) five years ago. There was torrential rain off and on throughout, but these pics were taken during the dry lightning act of the show.

This time,Β I can’t take credit for the photography. My daughter Denise and her husband Dave captured parts of the electrical event on their cellphones during their visit with us. I had no idea smartphones could take such great pictures!

Notice, in most of them, the phenomenon of shelf clouds with the bonus of the setting sun in the shrouded background.

Tomorrow we have a high Humidex warning with values approaching mid-thirties.
More unsettled weather may be coming.

Eek! Could another thunderstorm be on its way?

      1. Last night I walked our usual route—during a thunder and lightening storm. There’s a first time for everything, and I was scared to death. But I got some moody sky pictures. πŸ™‚ Worth the moments of terror. I missed getting lightning shots though.

  1. I love the rains, so can visualise the thrill of nature’s fireworks in those lightning streaks in the pics. The the south west and north east monsoon rains in India would be a nature lover’s delight…best wishes, jennifer..

    1. Our cats were not all that impressed. Nico, though, our visiting golden doodle, seemed to be interested in what all the hub-bub was about. He stuck close to us, looking in the same direction as if he was taking it all in! πŸ™‚
