Spring Thunderstorm 2012

On the afternoon of May 24, the skies darkened as a thunderstorm approached.

1:10 pm

1:17 pm

1:29 pm

The rain falls — but doesn’t faze the birds in the field.

1:36 pm

1:37 pm

Raindrops gather on the dead branches.

1:38 pm

1:38 pm

The rainfall increases.

1:39 pm

Wild strawberries in the rain puddled grass.

2:06 pm

Rain puddles in the fields across the street.

2:20 pm

Puddling in the driveway too, spillover from the fields on the other side of the trees.

2:21 pm

The storm passes and the sky clears.

6:51 pm

And the sunset is gorgeous!

About J. Thomas Ross

Since retiring from a career as a high school English and history teacher, I've been pursuing a career as a writer. My main interest is in writing novels, but I've also written short stories and poetry and done a little editing on the side. I am currently working on a Young Adult novel. One of my poems - "Winter" - won an award at the 2010 Philadelphia Writers Conference, and you can find my fantasy short story "A Rock Is a Rock Is a Rock ... Or Is It?" in the anthology Tales of Fortannis: A Bard's Eye View, which is available in print and Kindle format from Amazon and as an e-book from Double Dragon Press.
