Kitchen

Oooh, weather-gasming over here

I was just out walking around in the most beautiful evening I've ever seen.

First, there was the sunset. It was one of those that makes you want to run for a camera. The sky was peachy-pink everywhere, and there were a variety of cloud shapes for the light to catch so it was even more amazing.

To the north there was a really vivid rainbow, with a second one beside it that wasn't quite as clear.

Across the rainbow and the sky all around it was lightning. There was one flash of lightning that looked like tree roots, starting from one point and spreading across the sky. Then there was another one that filled the whole sky with blue lines and flashes.

I walked home in the pouring rain, singing, dancing to my music, grinning, and generally looking like I was totally insane.

Words really aren't doing this justice... I hope everyone else in the area saw it and knows what I'm talking about.

The lights are flickering, so maybe I'd better cut this short.

[Side note: Does anyone else get as moved by beautiful natural phenomena as I do?]
