Powerful Isolated Thunder Storms

Powerful Isolated Thunderstorms hit parts of Longview today.
In some places people were enjoying beautiful picnics and enjoying the good life while others were going through hell.
My parents live in the general direction of where I shot this photo.
Later up on getting fuel at a gas station I looked to the Western hills and said" "Hun, that is one bad storm mom and dad are getting ." After arriving home,I called mom up to shoot the breeze and she said that "They just had one loud storm but couldn't see where the.strikes took place."She went on to say She had never heard that bad of a thunder storm since they lived there in over40 years... There was one time that lighting did strike the barn before I was adopted. Mom said that the barn glowed an eerie blue and was transparent.enough to se the siloette of the horses.
Longview has a lot of hills and elevations are any where from below sea level to over 2,ooo feet in elevation . Were surrounded by mountains and we can get wierd weather. My parents farm seems to.be a.hot spot for thunderstorms. They usually get them while much of Longview remains oblivious.
