Lightning, Thunder, Wind, Rain
It has been a wonderful time of year because we've actually gotten rain in South Texas. Great news for the wildflowers and bees, not to mention every other living thing around here. Last night we had a marvelous storm packed with flashes of lightning and claps of thunder. Thankfully we didn't have any limbs come down from the pecan nor did we get struck by lighting or fierce winds as others suffered. We only lost power for a few hours I believe. I tried to sleep through most of it with a pillow over my head to muffle the thunder. Didn't work great but it helped. This is FM464 on the way to work (well, one route anyway).
And this is what I call Lake Caterpillar - it's at the stoplight for FM464 and Kingsbury/Hwy90.
