Quite a show last night apparently, though I slept through much of it. It used to be a rare event when we received lightning and thunder with a storm. This is the first rain in about four months, so the freeways are their typically oil slick and nasty. This is the kind of day for staying in, reading a book and listening to the wonderful sounds interspersed with sirens and helicopters. ;-)
Of course, I am supposed to be on the far side of the Valley a little after noon.
