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 )
