Skywatch Friday : Yesterday ...

... and for a few days, we have had unseasonal storms - mainly terrific lightening and thunder followed by scattered rains ...

... so out came the camera yesterday after a night of flashing and crashing ... 'rumble in the jungle' as I told Connor. He is petrified ... but calmed him a lot when he noticed how scared Jackie, our little Jack Russell was. I then put the emphasis on her which helped quite a bit. We kept her calm by talking to her and making sure she was comfy in her bed, otherwise she hides, shaking under the table

The sky began to clear in the morning but not before that big black cloud burst ....

... and then it cleared ...

... and cleared some more until there was not a cloud to be seen ..

... by lunch time, they gathered again ...

... and got 'very angry' ....

... lightening and thunder (was busy calming littlies and doggies! .. would love to capture a lightening strike!!!!) and 'rumbing in the jungle' before it cleared again ...

... to a beautiful clear, crisp and cold evening ....

... with the moon shining brightly ....
