Wow! What weather!!

I think of the area I live in as being fairly arid...because it usually is. But today we got caught in a very strong storm while driving between cities. It was so strong that people were pulling to the side of the road, putting on their hazards, and actually SLOWING DOWN. The hail was collecting on our windshield, visibility was terrible, and lightening was striking very near us. It's humbling to realize that nature can quickly make us immobile in our modern cars and turn us into sitting ducks for bolts of killer electricity from the sky. So glad to be home, sweet home.
