Son et Lumiere

We were treated to a spectacular show last night.  It started around 10 pm, just after we had gone to bed.

Unlike our usual, rare,  thunderstorms this one flashed and rumbled continuously over the course of a couple of hours. Even with the bedroom curtains closed the lightning flashes were so bright they lit up the room. They were like someone's demented Christmas lights. 

There was not much rain, just a few handfuls thrown against the windows but the light show was superb.

    2. I doubt it. I don't eat enough oysters or red meat.

  2. Northern Lights by Renaissance would be good background music to accompany your light show.

  3. I love a lightening show. We had a good show the other night but got well needed rain as well.
    Now we are gearing up for a heat wave.

    1. This one caused great excitement here. The best one in the last 25 years apparently. Lots of people were out taking photos. I stayed in bed.

  4. We had one of the worst storm I can recall here but I didn't see much lightning at all.

  5. Despite several warnings of thunderstorms we still haven't experienced any. We saw the mother of all thunderstorms once when we were in Italy on holiday - it was spectacular!
