Terrific thunder rain and wind came 'storming' through the area late Sunday afternoon. Close in tow was a definite change in atmosphere. A little bit cooler, a lot less humid...

The storms left mist and fog hanging low over the hills, like smoke in the wake of the storm's war path. Broken branches and debris were scattered everywhere along the roadsides.

The sudden drop in temperature had me thinking about the end of summer, which is coming fast. The corn stalks getting tall reinforced my dour anticipation.

We went down to the river to walk the dog. In a short while the sunset was casting a beautiful glow, painting gold the sky, and the mist and fog in the distance.

Aaah. No need to jump the gun, there's still plenty of summer left...
