Thunder and Lightning

We had a bit of hail, heavy rain and thunder and lightning today.  Pretty typical weather, but I’m always wary of larger hail that will pulverize the gardens.

This painting is of storm clouds rolling over the peaks of the Bridger Mountain Range on the edge of our town.

The mountains are huge, but dwarfed here by the wave-like clouds.  The sun setting in the west tinges the clouds with a golden glow.  On the other side of the mountain range is a ski area, Bridger Bowl.  The moisture builds up against those mountains and deposits deep snow in the winter and heavy rain in the spring and summer.  Right now, the snow is still covering the peaks and we are having local floods adding to the Missouri river and downstream flooding from us.  All that snow still needs to melt.  Sorry, downstream towns and cities, but the Missouri has a lot of high water coming your way.
