The Approaching Storm

I’m a big fan of thunderstorms (as long as they don’t escalate into tornadoes) and, personally, I think that the storms produce some of the most beautiful spectacles of nature. The cloud formations, the lightning, the sheer power of it all is wonderful to watch. Since I hate hot, humid weather, DC, thunderstorms are the single redeeming quality of DC summers. We’ve had a few doozies over the last week or so—including a batch of tornados—but I took these pictures as a simple, run-of-the-mill, pop-up thunderstorm rolled through this afternoon.
