Summer Storms Mean Beautiful and Powerful Displays of Nature

Bear Valley and Lake Alpine, Ca... This past weekend, as many experienced, there were quite the summer storms occurring. While the rain was welcome, the lightning made everyone wary. However, for a couple of visitors to our beautiful area, the lightning made for a fantastic photo op. Ryan Schill, from Cupertino, captured an amazing lightning strike while staying at cabin in Bear Valley, and reported that the rain quickly put out the fire that the lightning started. Rachael Manners was staying in a cabin in Pacific Valley, and drove to Lake Alpine, where she was able to snap a few photos of the lightning storm above the mountains. Check out these beautiful photos by talented young photographers!

Never say "quickly put out the fire that the lightning started" ... the tree can smoke for days, all it takes is lighting down the center and into the roots, 3 inches underground is so DRY right now... SMOLDER and then heat and sun and WHAM ... FIRE...

    Top hole. Bally Jerry pranged his kite right in the how's your father. Hairy blighter, dicky-birdied, feathered back on his Sammy, took a waspy, flipped over on his Betty Harper's and caught his can in the Bertie.
