Friday night April 14 was a special evening. A spectacular thunderstorm rolled in around 9:00 PM with lots of lightning to light up the world outside, a fitting event for Good Friday. The dogs wanted to come into the house and the most shy one insisted on cowering beneath the computer desk. After awhile I took him back out to the front porch where I lingered awhile to watch the celestial fireworks and to commune with the forces of nature. We have had several rains since and a really nice soaker this past Saturday, a bit too ducky for a Saturday morning market day but we needed it. The lightning picture was not taken here on my farm (I'm not that good!)but it captures well the essence of the Good Friday storm and my reasons for going outside to watch it.
