Storm clouds gather behind the church...

The sky turned black...

Just as we were leaving Ritzville this evening, a powerful thunderstorm rolled in from the east. I got these photographs just before the rain began to fall. I tried to get a shot of the lightnight, but it simply would not cooperate. As we drove home, the lightning crackled all around us and a vicious storm cell dumped torrential rain and hail on our car. In all my life, I don't think I've seen a storm like this in the Spokane area.

We arrived in Spokane, just as the fireworks were going off at Riverfront Park. We pulled over to watch the display of artificial fire on the one hand, with lightning approaching on the other hand. It was wonderful to see the lights and hear the thunder mingled with the 4th of July celebration.

Not to be outdone, Mother Nature grabbed her chance to show off, too.
