When the temperature goes up to 100 degrees F - and stays there - I find it a bit hard to take. I don't enjoy living in air conditioning all the time! Eventually the weather breaks - and often it is spectacular. Clouds like these make great photos - but look out!
I had gone down to the grocery store - and didn't time it too well. By the time I got to my drive the rain had started. I got out and opened my gate and then drove to the side of the house and made a run for the back door. By the time I got inside I was soaked to the skin. The wind was unbelievable! It picked up the rain drops, turned them into a misty cloud and then blew it all circular. I have often seen rain blown perpendicular but never until now blown in a circular cloud. All the time there was a most spectacular lightning show. I was very lucky because the only hail I saw was very small and not too much of it. When It all finished I went out to check what was blown over in the yard but again I was lucky. All I found was this old bird's nest.
The internet went down for nearly a full day.
After all that I did not expect to see more butterflies but they are still around and still in large numbers. I couldn't resist trying for more photos - who knows how long it will be before we have another migration event like this year.
