    Beautiful Thunder Storm

    We had an amazing thunder storm lastnight. It happened right at sunset, with very few clouds to the west, so the colors were absolutely amazing, as was the lightening and thunder. I just wanted to share. Enjoy!

    Wow those are spectacular pictures!!! Heaven and earth are full of HIS glory! Those pictures are proof!! My whole family enjoys loud weather, thunderstorms, strong winds but of course we don't want anyone hurt or property damaged by either.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    This is just before one that we had but it lasted only 10 minutes. It had straight line winds that were 100 mph and hail the size of a nickel. Put 230,000 out of power for 5 days. However the sky was beautiful just before it arrived.

    This reminds me of some of the sun sets I've seen while visiting Cedarville, CA. over in Surprise Valley. Thanks for sharing

    When i was young and lived in Ohio, I loved the thunder storms and the soft summer rains. I do miss it.

    Well, Cedarville is just over that mountain about 10 miles north! I work with a gal in Cedarville and she said they didn't get the storm - just wind.
