When a thunder storm comes…

IMG_1518IMG_1531When I was a child growing up, we lived for the beach. We especially enjoyed thunder storms, which came without much warning. Suddenly the sky would become dark, the thunder, lightening and wind would start howling. We were on read alert for tornadoes.

As you can see in the first photo, the storm was coming in strong the other day. After watching the movie, “The Wizard of Oz,” I think we all kept looking for that tornado that might come over Lake Michigan, but we never saw one. However, we did stay glued to the window watching and listening to the thunder/lightening. When we were children, my Italian mother would say that Zeus was upset at mortals and was throwing lightening bolts from heaven. She loved Greek Mythology.

I thought it was amazing that the Lake could look so different after ONLY two hours. When the storm passed, the Lake became this beautiful blue color with the fantastic sunset.

And FINALLY, a little hazy, the view of the Chicago skyline.

If you have an interesting storm photo, would love to see it!
