Thunderstorm and a log fire

A summer thunderstorm came rolling into our end of the valley just after I'd lit the log fire a few minutes ago. A few deep peals of thunder complimented by the staccato crackling of the burning wood. Nature's own symphony and very cool.

We get lots of thunderstorms here because of the sun heating the rocky mountains during the day. I'm really looking forward to the summer and all the extreme weather it's going to bring.
