In the midst of the "heat wave," we have been having evening showers most days. I went down to my favorite by-way to watch the dark clouds rolling in.
The Blue Ridge Mountains are truly blue, especially before a storm.
The clouds begin to gather, turning everything darker.
More and more of the sky is covered.
I wanted to linger and watch the storm, but a big bolt of lightning made me change my mind. It was too close for comfort so I headed home.
It now appears that Congress will pass a bill to keep our country from defaulting on its loans. Created in the last hours before the deadline, it is not pleasant and leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. But it is probably the best we will get. When you see that one group is perfectly willing to divide the baby...well, you know what I mean.
