Rain, Lightening and Thunder

The storm clouds coming from the north-east. The sun was still shining and that makes the clouds look fierce.

And the rain came in sheets, in waves pushed by strong winds. And the lightening flashed and the thunder crashed, and I was outside in a corner of a sheltered carport on Good Avenue. I had plenty of time to make it home before the storm came but I wanted to watch this storm being outside. I didn't get wet, at least not soaking wet. The harder the wind blew, lightening flashed and thunder crashed I stayed in my corner. The frogs came hoping onto higher ground. A cat with long skinny legs almost flew up the street. I do think it was just a common barn cat and not a Bobcat.  

This is blurry, but the rains were still strong. Finally the last strokes of lightening and thunder came and went. The rains basically quit and I went home going just below the speed limit for a for a bike.

Storm Damage

Tonight I met up with this group of men and their vehicles. Tomorrow they are coming back to clean up the Pinecraft Park. Some work has been done this week like mowing the grass but the park is still a mess. 

Six Palm trees fell, four of them like dominoes at the north end of Kaufman.

This pine fell across the fence behind Everence bank and slightly damaged the corner of a building.
