Lightning Strikes Main Street, Jeffersonville

Tuesday, 3 pm

I had reluctantly turned off the computer in case of a surge. I also walked away from work in order to sit on the couch with the dog, who is terrified of thunder. And I love watching a good storm in silence.

After a while, I noticed how calm MacGregor had become, thinking that finally, at almost 7 years old, he was not afraid of thunder anymore. And at that moment…

… Mega, out-of-nowhere, heaven piercing KABOOOOOM! and huge wood shavings flying by my side window. I snapped these a few moments later, as the skies took their tantrum east after stomping the grounds and making a bold announcement over Main Street, Jeffersonville.

Notice the shaven trunk (green arrow) and piece of wood hanging from neighboring tree (yellow arrow).

    1. Yes… as well as the smell of burning wood. I wish I had actually seen the lightening bolt. It had to be spectacular. I did not realize this at the time, but there are pieces of wood over 60 feet away from the tree. Thank you for stopping by!

  1. I was cleaning Saruba’s stall just as that front was moving in. Made a couple dashes to the compost pile thinking, “maybe this isn’t such a good idea”. Next time, I’ll leave off the “maybe” and heed the rest. Thanks for yet another blog taken to heart!

    P.S. – How’s MacGregor??

    1. Yes, do stay safe. I’m sure Saruba was not running around either. 🙂 Macgregor is OK. For some reason there was really a shift in him with yesterday’s storm. he did not even move from his share when there was thunder earlier today. Normally he would be at my feet. Thanks for reading.
