Christy got to experience one of the coolest things ever last night, lighting in a snowstorm. If you have seen it then you know what I am talking about. The way the whole sky explodes into a brilliant white and then slowly fades away only to have another burst light everything again. It is a very transcendent thing to watch/experience. This was the second time I have seen it and it marvels me each time.
The side note to that was the lighting, the 4 inches of new snow, or something else blew the power out at our house from 4:30 to a little after eight. Thanks to very thoughtful Christmas gifts from parents we had plenty of light, a radio and emergency food if we needed it.
