Moved to Salem, Massachusetts 2 years ago.

I take at least one picture a day.
Why not share my pictures along with
a narrative about each photo EVERYDAY!

Was that another month ?

Storm Approaches While Driving

Contrasting dark storm cell clouds overtaking nice blue fluffy clouds.

For the last 4 months every week and a half we have been receiving these storm cells. I see them coming off in the distance where rumbles can be heard. As they get close the lightning brightens the dark clouds. Some move fast and some move slow depending on the winds that precede them. Usually birds can be seen getting out of the storms way.

As they pass the thunder and lightning is spectacular, then the rain comes. It rains for about 2-6 minutes just enough to soak everything, and then it moves away allowing the sunlight to return. In its wake though the temperature drops 5-10 degrees and it stays cool for a few days until the the heat returns, then the whole process starts over again.

I kid you not, it has been doing this for 4 months now!
