ABC Wednesday / "A"


Our day began with a sky covered with clouds. The mountains were not visible at all.
Soon the rain came, with lightning and thunder and even a small tornado near our coastal region of Orange County.
People in the "burn" areas of southern California have been advised to evacuate because of the danger of mud flows.  Many of these people will remain and not accept the advice...
raindrops add up!


Those of us out of the danger are  anxiety-free and are amused by the awesome skies created by these storms.
ABC Wednesday 
The theme is "A"

I would be anxious enough to follow advice if I were in a mud flow area! Sure hope those involved stay safe. Beautiful pictures, especially the rainbow!

Beautiful photos of the sky, especially that rainbow! I hope the evacuation orders were not needed and that everyone is safe.

Beautiful photos! Hope the mud doesn't slide but as I remember, it usually does.
