What a lovely summer!  Despite low irrigation pond levels at the end of spring, the rains made up for lost time!   Abundant rains and moderate summer heat make us happy to sit on the front porch at 'most any opportunity! One amazing thunderstorm last weekend dropped almost two inches of rain on us.  During the process, our friend, photographer and weather chaser Brian Emfinger, caught this breathtaking photo aloft just outside Clarksville, Arkansas, facing our direction.  I am willing to bet we were on our front porch when this photo was shot, and we promptly hauled ourselves inside, the strikes were so close!  Thanks for permission to share your photo, Brian!  You can follow Brian on Instagram and Twitter @brianemfinger
