After the storm
We've really been getting hammered lately by horrific thunderstorms that hit just before dusk. They usually come up very fast, with wildly roiling clouds close the ground, and high winds. Some rain, too, and occasionally hail. Lots of sound and fury. They make one feel very small and insignificant.
Last night we got dessert after the main course. The setting sun poked through just long and strong enough to give us that brilliant last-light effect, along with a high, arching rainbow that seemed to be balancing on the hill just south of me. A nice reward.
