Summer Storm

Sunday, we had some of the most incredible storms I've seen in a while sweep across the island. They started in mid-afternoon and didn't relent until sometime during the night. The only place poor Fala could be comforted was in her pen, in our room, or under the bed. Another one came through Monday afternoon and she darted under my parents' bed before we could catch her.

Approaching Storm

Anyway, Becky snapped some shots (some outside before the lightning strikes started) and some through the windows of some of the amazing clouds we saw. They looked painted on the sky and I thought I'd share them.

Amy:

Wow. Love the swirls of blues.

Lisa:

Cool photos, and poor Fala!

Fabulous photos! My cocker spaniel didn't like stormy weather either and she'd hide in a corner in my closet and shake for the duration of the storm.

Jane:

Kim, beautiful, moving pictures. We're in the middle of a horrendous thunder, lightening and rain storm here in Montepulciano. Absolutely firce. The kind of storm that is exciting to witness.

Kim [TypeKey Profile Page]:

Jane, get off the computer! :) We had another one move through today - not nearly as fierce though but Fala scratched at the door to my parents' room until she got it open and could hide under their bed. She's such a drama queen.
