Rainbow, Thunder and Lightening

On Tuesday our day went well, until about 5:00 pm......

















See us? - Moe and Mindy - in the stairwell, where we feel safe.
We heard noises outside da house. Mom went out on the deck to check. This is what she saw.

















We were informed that a thunderstorm was beginning. Our powers went out - twice! We decided to keep hiding in the stairwell. It rained very hard and thunder rolled. After an hour it got brighter. We saw a glimpse of the sun and then this rainbow!


















There are two rainbows in this picture.

















We enjoyed the rainbow lots, we liked the colors.

















The sun was setting, and we thought the storm was over, but oh, no!

















This time mombean got a photo of lightening! The storm was NOT over.
















Mindy: I stayed put in the stairwell, but Moe ran under the bed. We were stuck in our hide-y places until after midnight!! Can you guess that we do not like storms that flash and boom?

We also do not like thunder and storm. But the rainbows look pretty well and the dark sky on the second picture looks threatening but amazing.
Hope you recovered from noise and lightning.

The shots are very cool, especially the last with the rainbow AND lightning at the same time!

Thunder storms don't bother us much, but if our mom could fit UTB, she'd hide for sure. LOL.

Did you know that when you see a double rainbow it is good luck?
