Any Rain in Them Thar Clouds?

Sure...just not over my house! However we did not get the bad weather! In Gilmer, a building on the courthouse square lost its landed on the courthouse lawn! Trees down on the ground and through roofs of houses. As much as we need the rain, we do not need loss of property and possibly lives...

My very FIRST lightning strike photo.
I am so excited! I know that it's not very showy. But hey! It's my first!

The hole in the clouds over my house.
Yes that is a bit of an exaggeration, but there is a hole in the clouds...and I am standing in my front yard.

Moving the camera just a rain in these clouds!
Every so often, afterwards, not while I am taking the photos mind you...afterwards I see an antennae or "guy" wire in my photo. Sam's Ham radio antennae is such a part of my sky view that I do not notice it!

Here in Columbus we are having thundershowers right now. They aren't severe just some good rain. I know Texas and Florida are pretty dry so I hope the patterns change and you all get some rain too.

At least you had some rain and snow last winter. We haven't had anything down here in San Antonio. My yard is split in half with a 4 inch wide crack in the earth. I'm not complaining..I love it, but I did miss having fireworks.
