Good video. The same storm seemed to travel just north of our location. We only had a very little rain.

As for milkweed, I started some plants from seed this spring. I will transplant the young shoots as soon as we move to our new place. ATB!

There is nothing like a thunder and lightening storm to remind us of the power of nature and how wonderful it can be. Keep you head down...lol...I love a thunder storm especially over the lake at our camp.

Pittsburgh had terrible flash flooding following a heavy rainstorm clogging drains. Thunderstorms are beautiful, like in your picture, but they can also be dangerous. - Margy

It's hurricane season coming up so we're always watching the weather news. There seems to be a lot more violent weather this year. It's so scary.
