I was chased home tonight by lightning as I returned from a covenanting service at Dunlop United in Sarnia. (That's the extent of my bachelor's night: without the company of Shelley and Rei, I went to church... I did stay for the coffee and squares after, hobnobbing with the big names of Lambton Presbytery).
I got home in time to tie down the barbecue cover, close some windows and watch the marvellous summer storm from the window. At one point the sky turned an exotic green-blue before another lightning strike. Thankfully, Rei slept through all the gusting, crackling and rumbling. This should take the edge of the heat, hopefully; at the very least, the storm's passed so I could blog about it.
