This is the beginning of the threat ...

When a thunderstorm is eminent I disconnect all the plugs of electric apparatus from the power points. Once my house was struck by lightning and I lost my TV set, video and DVD set, the radio and my telephone-fax apparatus. I had no computer then, but those of my neighbours were all damaged.

We get lots of clouds and rain in British Columbia, but fortunately thunderstorms are not too frequent. For us, the wind is the most dangerous. I chose a solar halo for my contribution. I invite you to come see. -- Margy

Middle Ditch That's also true that skies can look dark and nothing happens and sometimes the sky is blue and suddenly there is a bolt of lightning.

runee how terrible to lose such expensive things by thunder. All my 16 solar panels were also damaged.

old wom tigley thanks for the kind words!

powell river books lucky you! We have had more thunderweather this year than last year this time.

That is an amazing sky.

I am doing a mini series on the viking and the Isle of Man this week, partly inspired by you inquiring about norse place names.

Gosh it starts out so beautiful doesn't it...
We rarely get thunderstorms but when we do they're downright wicked.

Thanks Babooshka! I read your most interesting post about the vikings. It's true that when a Viking died one of the slave girls was killed to serve him in the afterlife. This happened in a very cruel way.

Hi Janice, yes the most beautiful skies have sometimes nasty surprises in store for us!
