Summer Storm

Last night brought us some wild and crazy weather here in Portland! We've been having a string of very warm days in the Pacific Northwest, and with that came a summer storm. An incredible lighting show and rumbling thunder started at 10:30 P.M. and stayed with us into the wee hours until 4:30 A.M. Chris took the first photo from our deck at sunset.

The second photo was snapped at 3:15 A.M. from our living room window. It almost looked like dawn outside but it was because of the sheet lighting! Shortly after this I went back to bed, the heavens opened up and wow, did it rain!

Today all is clean and green and the air smells great. True and native Oregonians love the rain no matter what the season!
