Thunderbolts and lightning

I haven’t been getting out and doing anything exciting this summer. Mostly concentrating on work and trying to complete a couple of programing projects before school starts again in the fall. (more about those once they get nearer to completion)

Even without leaving home though, I had an interesting occurrence, a thunderstorm complete with rain and lightning. This combined with a couple of other sprinkles of rain means this may be the most rain recorded for July in Bakersfield since 1989! Sadly still not enough to make a dent in the current drought situation (most of it evaporated immediately after since its hot here this time of year)

Made for some interesting photo ops though.
