Spectacular Thunderstorms and More

Sept. started off with a bang! We've been enjoying the spectacular thunderstorms from our back porch. My son has been shooting many pictures and I hope you can *hear* the crack of thunder in them.

I'm starting Sept. off with a bang too! I have the heroic minute where I get up early to work on my novel. That's the only way it's going to get done amidst all the other writing I do.

We have many birthdays in the family to celebrate too!I love Sept.

Sept. will also end with a bang. The SCBWI Carolinas conference is set for the last weekend in Sept. and I am so excited as I prepare for it. If you are going, please find me. The Blueboarders are planning a get together Sat. evening and I'd love for you to join us. Sunday afternoon, I shall be hurrying back to sing for a High Mass for Feast of the Holy Angels. Oh, and if you are curious, our little church was mentioned in this article. So, if you're visiting in Charleston, you know where to find us.

Here's wishing you a Sept. filled with lots of bangs! The good kind :)

I love the purple sky. And the crystal clear bolt especially in the second picture.

Great photo! Please send some of that rain our way!

Good luck on your novel! I can't wait to see it. Do you have a target date by which you want to finish?
The thunderstorms around here can be brutal. One of Elizabeth's classmates' house was struck by lightening. They lost all their electronics: computers, tvs, etc.
Have fun at your conference.

Mirka, WOW is right!

Marcia, purple was my mom's favorite color and I can see why ... and the lightning strikes are close and powerful.

Bish, I pray for rain for the Texans.

Gary, Thank you. I want to finish this round of revisions by the end of Sept. and polish and get it submission ready by the end of this year.

And I agree about the power of those lightning bolts. We've had strikes on DI that caused fires and loss of all electronics as well. We're always running around unplugging our devices ...
