Lightning, Thunder, & Fire

Huge flash of lightning outside the bedroom window, followed by a loud clap of thunder woke me this morning. Pouring down rain.
Heading out to the patio with my coffee - smoke. Not good. The lightning struck something in the yard of one of the houses behind ours. Thank goodness the rain was coming down hard enough to squelch the flames; it was out before the fire Department got there.
Cloudy, dreary, the rain will continue in spurts.

A perfect day to curl up with a good book.

Speaking of good books, my buddy is now proofing the production galley for  Nathan's Clan of Deadheads, Book 3 of his World of Deadheads series. It should be released this Fall. If you haven't snatched up the first two, now would be a good time so you can get up to speed. You can get the Kindle format for the cost of a Starbucks Latte...
(For your convenience, covers are linked to Amazon.)
Book 1

Book 2
Have a nice weekend.
Jean - stay dry; hugs et bisous!

Please! Send us some of your rain! Our driest winter in a long time! Great post as always! So pleased that your "friend's" books are doing well! I had a bad day yesterday, not well at all. Enjoy your weekend!

I pray to the gods of your local weather services so that you are unscathed as much as possible. The situation is in constant flux and is hard to predict.
Alas, the only forecast which is sure, it is that all these disasters will not help DT understand what is more and more obvious as regards the global warming.
In spite of the destruction of his luxurious properties one after the other, what is a cold comfort.
To curl up is a good advice if it's possible, and it's what I do with you, my darlings Jean and pat, by sending you all my love and all my bisous.

Postscript: Pat, Do you remember the song that I translated for you? The earthquakes, the lightning and the thunder, Are not what we say, etc. ?

@ Xersex - that "smoke" was in reference to the smell from the fire.
