Afternoon thunderstorms have been a bit frightening (i.e. noisy) the last few days.
We dodged a bullet yesterday as I watched this cloud from our yard. It stayed to the south of us, and I heard from a friend in the neighboring town that she'd had a torrential downpour... while we had barely a drop.
The cloud itself was beautiful, especially framed by a bright blue sky. But I thought the shafts of light seen here were especially awesome... enough for me to run into the house and grab my camera.
