Yesterday was the tax filing deadline
Around noon the clouds rolled in. Within a matter of minutes the sky was dark with them and I was using artificial light in my house. Lightning and thunder put on a spectacular display aurally and visually and we lost our electricity briefly. Rain and hail poured down--it was amazing. When the electrical storm wore itself out, the rain continued softly for about an hour, then sprinkled randomly throughout the evening.
Everything cleared off at night. The stars seem brighter after a thunderstorm. I know--silly. Still, it seems that way to me.
