Day 6 - the August Break

We have been having some wicked thunderstorms this week.  I was awakened yesterday morning at 1:20am by loud thunder, blinding lightening and blowing rain.  Instead of rolling over and trying to go back to sleep, I hoped out of bed and grabbed my camera.  Um, why would I do such a thing?  I was trying to get a good picture of the lightening strikes but with all the rain, I couldn't capture it.  With more thunderstorms predicted this weekend, maybe I'll be able to get some good ones.  I just hope I don't have to wake up in the middle of the night to do it.
