Lucky me, I made a couple of random shots of the thunderstorm and YES, when I looked at them at the computer I found THIS..:
This afternoon was HOT again. All day was HOT!
This morning we made some additional fence to keep Cleo in the backyard if necessary.
We surrendered to the heat around 11am and "rescued" the horses from swarms of horseflies and pitiless temperatures.
Midas was sweating and tired, Indigo's breathing was heavy. They were very grateful to be able to hide in their stalls...
We went inside also and stayed there practically all day.
I started to fix supper at 5pm, around that time I heard Hasi holler from outside the kitchen window, I looked outside and she was standing with her arms up in the air welcoming the first raindrops!!!
Those last days we were longing for a little thunderstorm and rain SO MUCH, but it just didn't happen (for us)...
We took our supper and sat down on the porch, looking at the dark clouds and lightning, listening to the wind storming through the tree tops and we were wincing with every "boom".
It was wonderful to feel the temperatures drop and also witness one of natures most powerful ways to remind us what power really is.
I always loved to watch thunderstorms, I remember sitting on the windowsill of my room when I was little... my legs were hanging out (first floor) and I was counting the lightnings that were unloading purest energy...
After the storm was over we turned the horses out again, they were so happy raced out onto the pasture.
