Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

After Yesterday's Storm

Yesterday afternoon was hot and humid. Clouds formed and thunder rolled.

The thunder continued for hours. Toward late afternoon, I could see lightning flash in the south and west. Several showers poured down rain, but we didn't get the damaging wind that hit Roanoke and other places.

After the storms, everything was clean and bright.

I figured there'd be a pretty sunset. I was right.

Mist hangs below Chestnut Mountain

Jack's Mountain 

Cupcake lay down during the storm, so she's covered in shavings.

Melody went out to graze.
