Weird Weather

Alvin can't help but wonder...



Oh, I almost forgot. Since moving to Oklahoma in 2004, I’ve seen a lot of strange weather phenomena, and last Saturday night was no exception.

It was dark, and the sky was clear except for one large cloud that hovered over the town, and within this one cloud was what I can only describe as a lightning show. It wasn’t raining, (for once), there was no thunder, just lightning in that one cloud, and the show lasted for about 2 hours.

Funnily enough, the cloud was located in exactly the same position as the previous night’s firework display had been. I think Nature was giving us her very own firework display, and I have to admit it far surpassed the town’s 4th of July exhibit.

Unfortunately, we didn’t take a photo, but even if we had I don’t think it would have done justice to this amazing spectacle.

Glad to have you back Jan'. The weather is really odd for July, I'm still blaming my mum!

PG, You're right it was wild. Congrats on the new baby. Do you have a name for her yet?

Thanks, Sarah. It's good to be back. And you can't blame your mum, the weather's been a bit weird here all year.
