There was ‘talk’ of Portland getting a chance of a thunder storm tonight but we just blew that chance right out of the water with a full blown light show. Awesome! Portland has pretty crappy T-storms, basically the sky flashes with no distinctive air searing bolts coming down. Blah, boring. Nothing like the Midwest. But we just had a pink bolt light show right above us for the last 15 minutes. We even had a huge, super bright bolt thunder down behind the giant trees across the street. I love those lingering ones, the kind that you can still see 30 seconds later when you close your eyes. Nothing like a mid-summer thunder storm to freshen things up…
Did anyone else see the action?

    i heard it, that’s for sure… it made me feel a little afraid, like of the times in idaho when i was afraid.

    I saw some, not much. Thunder knows to stay away from the good side of town.

    That storm was awesome. I had just gotten into bed and ended up turning out the light and standing in the window not wanting to miss anything. And I LOVE the smell of rain in the middle of the summer: earthy and fresh and green. Makes me want to roll in the middle of the street. As opposed to the rain in November that makes me want to crawl under a blanket and mainline hot chocolate.

    Aw…my brother missed it by a day! He was in Eugene, and the next day, Portland. Ah well…he did get to see some rain…at night while camping though! Sux!
