Late Summer Storm

We are located in a region known as the Palouse of Eastern Washington. The picture of this frightening storm was taken just outside of my home in Rosalia, WA on August 22, 2008, overlooking the wheat field bordered by HWY 195 to the east.

Late summer-early fall storms are pretty dangerous in our region since most storms only produce dry lightening. With an average annual precipitation of around 17 inches and low summer humidity it is not at all uncommon for these extremely dry grain fields to catch fire. My home only sits about 20 feet west of this particular field and we are only separated by a narrow dirt road.

I used to love watching God's magnificent power on full display like that. People thought I was nuts, of course. :D
