We had a humdinger of a thunderstorm yesterday afternoon.  Man, it was really coming down.  It is so much fun to watch, from the porch.  The village took a shortcut years ago, before we lived here, and instead of running a drain pipe under the street, they have a 20" drain pipe from streets up above us, just dump all the water on to our street!  So when there is a bit storm, we have rivers of water on both sides of the road.  Look at all the water piling up around this car across the street!

And there is always beauty to the rainfall.  This is a tired old Dogwood that still manages to have leaves on some of the branches while most of the rest of the tree looks dead.  I thought that this was a lovely picture - kind of subtle, but lovely to look at.  Please click on the photo to see it in more detail.
