Puddle Jumper

We are in the zone here with regular-as-clockwork afternoon (and frequently, overnight) thunderstorms. I can't quite manage to follow the common knowledge that with my APS surge protector, I "ought to" be okay, and I shut the system down when thunder and lightning occur with uncomfortable closeness or the windows rattle. I had a computer fry once (modem, video card, some other inner-jeejaws) and sure would hate to see smoke coming out of my nice skinny monitor.

So, we are having a lull between storms and the computer is back up, the sun is shining--temporarily--and steam rising from the barn roof. Won't be long before the next wave of storms, so here is another image from down by the mailbox--the walnuts across the road in the pasture, reflected in a picturesque Goose Creek dirt-road pothole. (Larger version on the gallery, here.)

Nifty Picture!

I thought the picture of the light coming through the trees was my favorite. This is just awesome! You're getting better and better and better. But don't stop writing--I enjoy reading your stuff just as much as seeing the beautiful photographs.

Just so ya know, if the storm and possible strikes are that close, you need to actually unplug the equipment from the outlet. No consumer surge protector is going to protect you from a close strike like that.
