Independence Day 2008!

We are looking forward to seeing fireworks later tonight -- that is -- if it doesn't rain on us! We are just into our monsoon season and the threat of lightning and rain is always present. Last evening we had a powerful light show for about 2 hours. We get amazing cloud-to-ground lightning and it is very dangerous. In one hour, we had over 800 strikes in our area. Hard to believe that no one got hurt and no houses caught fire. My son took some awesome video of some of the strikes. I will post it as soon as he gets it off his camera and onto the computer. Anyhoo, BBQ with the folks, some swimming and then fireworks. That's the plan for this Independence Day 2008!
