We had big fat drops against the west window just now, but there were stars out there and overhead. I went outside where all the cu are brightly lit by the moon and got treated to a splayed hand of lightning slapping the belly of a tiny cell that had just raced off and left it’s rain hanging in air behind it. The runoff from the roof began making a racket, but there was something different tickling my ear. The rain had already stopped falling, so I walked down the drive to listen to better hear the night. Oklahoma winter nights are absolutely still compared with cacophony of summer-time bugs. Tonight, it’s so warm that Southern Leopard Frogs have come out of their burrows and are calling ; first time in just about four months that I have heard them :-).

Time to get the gear ready.
