Mother Nature went out bowling on Sunday night!

Good morning, Tina here.

We had quite a thunder and lightning storm here Sunday night, it lasted about an hour. A dark black cloud came over our house.

I was watching TV, about to go upstairs to bed to read.  Hubby said, "oh, I just saw some lightning". That was about 7:45.  If you looked to the west, you couldn't miss it. And it went on and on, kept coming towards us and as it passed over the house it headed east.

Hubby took pictures but I don't have them on my computer. The thunder was glorious. It did sound like someone was bowling up in the heavens. It just rolled on and on.

Mother nature was definitely having a good time, and I think she rolled a strike!

The next day Facebook had photos from all over.  The sun as it crept toward the horizon.

Those clouds were very heavy and quite serious in their intent.

The Mosquito airport area was surrounded by color.

Main Street Georgetown looking south (towards our house!)

This is very close to what it looked like at our house, sunset on one side, lightning on the other.

One photographer said it reminded him of the King Fire since it was lit up with a strange glow.

I do wish I had the sound recorded. The thunder was incredible.

Lighting up the sky in Cool.

If you look closely at the top of the trees in the middle there is a streak of lightning there too. It was all over the sky.

That cloud again, this time looking south from Coloma/Lotus at the foot of Marshall Grade.

In a lot of places Mother Nature ended her bowling game with a celebratory rainbow.

April has been a glorious month, and it isn't quite over with yet... more thundershowers due here tonight.

Amazing Shots. I can just imagine how it sounded.

Wow! I can tell from your description and the photos that Mother Nature was quite the drama queen!
Goodness, I can't help but wonder if someone tried to fool her again?
"It's not nice to fool Mother Nature!"
