When the weather alert sounded that a severe thunderstorm was heading toward Seymour, I had time to put the car in the shed.

This look at the storm clouds was a bit earlier, before the alert when I took Sunny out for his morning constitutional.

The worst of the storms went south of here, lucky for me but not for the people who had large hail drop from the sky.

I was sitting in the living room when lightning struck somewhere near. I jumped, so did my dog and cats. The lightning was close enough to leave the odor of O-zone in the air.

When I could, I walked outside to look for damage. Trees were standing as usual, as were the farm buildings, but I continue to feel nervous. That was too close for comfort.

Until next time, that’s it from Sunnybook Farm.
