Georgetown in Washington, DC as the storm approached
Here's a heartening metaphor from the Washington Post report on severe thunderstorms yesterday that turned an early evening sky pitch black in the nation's capital:
For all its deadly and destructive effects, the storm moved relatively swiftly across the region. Though severe in its effects, the line of storms had moved on from many parts of the Washington area before nightfall.
As they were illuminated by the setting sun, some of the last clouds to scud across the sky seemed to have a silver lining.
And in some places, the departing clouds reflected the day’s last golden rays of sunshine.I'll return July 7. I wish American readers a great Fourth of July.
Best regards to all,
