Spring must be here

Spring must be here. Our first "real" thunderstorm banked up and blew through tonight. For all of the thundering and as long as it took to materialize, it really didn't amount to much. Lots of talk and not much action.

As a side note, the picture above with the three silos is where I grew up as a child. It's only a mile across the field from where we live now.


  1. It just looks like you can see forever! I can't imagine living where it is so flat but I'd be willing to try!

  3. I grew up in Iowa where it is totally flat as far as the eyes could see and the stormy skies looked like these photos... I enlarged the first photo and could count every dandelion. Very pretty!

  4. glad that it didn't do much by you. We were on the route 20 bypass by Rockford and drove in sheets of rain and hail. no wind but deluge and thunder and lightening. I wonder if the planting will ever get done.

  5. Ahhhhh spring. Louie and I were discussing when we wanted to take a week off work. He thought early June. I talked him into early July. Maybe by then, 'tornado season' will be over, and the temperatures will be more steady, and more 'motorcycle friendly'.

    I do have to admit, I love a good thunderstorm when I can sit out on my front porch in my rocking chair and listen to the rain pouring down, and watch the 'light show'.
    I love my front porch!

    Have a great day!

  6. I love how green the grass looks after the storm- kind od like life huh?!? Great pictures Lori!
