First Thunderstorm - 2016

Good Morning!

I know the first day of Spring is still a few days away, but the first thunderstorms of the year definitely signal the start of Spring for me. My Dad always uses the first thunderstorm as a guide for starting the garden, and living on the top of the mountain, we were very, very familiar with lightning (might have lost a few televisions as a kid).

The storms put on one heck of a show, that's for sure - I had several photos of lightning to pick from! This was my favorite, a bit of cloud-to-cloud, the city below - it also looked close enough that I decided it was a good time to abandon my rooftop shooting location!

Have a great day, everyone.
