and the clouds were brooding and threatening.
In the early morning hours we awoke to loud thunder as streaks of lightening filled the sky.
I find thunderstorms fascinating to watch
as I witness God's power in the heavens...
The rain continued into the morning, so I took my umbrella and went out to enjoy it as I captured some photos. I love the drops of rain; the design they made reminds me of embossed ceiling tin: Our newly transplanted hostas, a gift from my sister, are thankful for the rain:

Sunshine, blue skies and gorgeous cumulus clouds this afternoon:...And yesterday my family felt it. I must have been too busy at the library to notice, although I heard patrons discuss the earthquake that rattled the earth and scared many people, in particular those who live in the greater Toronto area as well as into Quebec and beyond.
Early reports said the magnitude was 5.5; it was later downgraded to 5.0. The epicentre was 45 kilometres north of Gatineau, Que., about 18 kilometres below the surface. People as far away as New York, Vermont, Michigan and Illinois reported feeling the tremors."
