On My Toes for the Storm

While driving home from my daughter’s dance recital tonight, I saw multiple lightning bolts and heard loud clasps of thunder that reminded me of the lightning strikes preceding the alien invasion in the remake of the movie The War of the Worlds. Tonight’s storm was a spectacular display of determined electricity, sideways rain, and hurricane-strength wind gusts. I watched in awe inside my car’s cabin while motorists bowed to the storm and snarled traffic to a crawl.
The beaten road turned into an obstacle course. On a seven mile stretch, I dodged a down electrical wire, a quickly flooding road that my car barely scooted across, two sizeable felled trees on an access road, and a can’t miss cursable detour due to road construction. It was a harrowing journey home but I tried not to sweat the small stuff. My daughters danced wonderfully.

As I my eyes moved side to side while I was reading this post, the lightning bolts in the photo you posted seemed to be flashing. I swear I haven't been drinking...
