A hot spell is forecast for the end of the week. Willow and I were caught in a storm this morning. We watched dark blue clouds forming above the mountains. A few strikes of lightning and claps of thunder up and down the valley. Willow didn’t seem to mind. Good news, as Slinky was scared shitless of thunder. The storm carried a splash of rain but passed quickly. Lisa laughed when she saw this photo, most people like taking pictures on clear sunny days while you prefer storms, she said. It’s the light, I say, there’s something it does to the blues.
