We don't get a lot of those around here, especially in summer. I was thinking it wasn't summer anymore, but, according to the Bureau of Omphaloskepsis, the equinox isn't until the 23rd. Guess it's a Yom Kippur thunderstorm, not an official- changing- of- the- seasons thunderstorm.
Anyway, a few minutes before 8 this evening - maybe 50 minutes past sunset - it got noisy and flashy and wet out there.
It's a good evening to be indoors.
