I Called It

On our way home Mom, Anna and I saw some really cool clouds, and I said, "It looks like thunder."
When we got home the clouds were looking more and more mysterious.
So I went out back to get some better pics, and when I returned to the barnyard to finish my chores for the evening, I heard the first crash of thunder off in the distance.
I was so excited, I jumped up and down clapping my hands, all most crying with excitement.
I absolutely love thunder and lightning storms.
A few years ago we had a huge thunder and lightning storm in the middle of the night, it was so loud and so close I woke with a jump. We watched that storm all night from our screen porch, the most exciting one I had ever seen or heard became a memorable night.
This one only rumbled twice and was never heard from again. But these clouds viewed with the fam and pups from the pumpkin patch is certainly notable.
On the other horizon the sky was turning pink. I love the pretty peach color in this picture, don't you?

Thanks for visiting me and my blog, I hope you have a spectacular weekend.

I was outside , in the shade, reading a book ,the winds picked up dramatically and began blowing the cottonwood seeds in circles, the book pages wanted to blow around and then the sky blackened....storm! I am very happy the winds blew the 90 degree temps away and wish for a lot of rain too. Great pictures Bet!( BTW , thunder storms excite me too and I love to watch the lightening, 'awesome' is a perfect word for Lightening and thunder )
