Over the last couple of weeks we have had a few early thunderstorms that were quite spectacular, including one that produced a short bout of pea sized hail earlier this week.
I have loved watching thunderstorms since I was little. My parents used to find me on the front porch in the middle of the night, cheering on the lightning. I still find the power of these storms humbling and spectacular, but I find myself worrying more about the potential damage they may produce these days.
One of the benefits of living on the prairie is that you can see these storms coming from far out on the western horizon. And they still put on quite a show.
