black and white wednesday - storm

Last week, we had a pretty bad storm in our town.  One of our local doctors’ house burned to the ground after it was struck by lightning.

According to our local news FOUR houses were struck by lightning and caught fire during this storm. 
PRAYER REQUEST:1.  Remember those who have lost their homes to fires.  There are not enough words to say how that feels and how much support is needed for these families.
UPDATE:  No one was injured in this fire, and the doctor and his family have such a great attitude about it, they are rebuilding in the exact same spot . . . he says, “Lightning doesn’t strike in the same place twice.”

The storm was bad and this was the scene at our little office.

You can see the rain hitting the door.  Literally raining sideways.

We had to get towels from the kitchen to soak up all the water.  This is Reese’s on her toes watching the storm.  I love these storm shots in black and white, because it was so gloomy and dark outside.

After the storm, that same evening was gorgeous.  Isn’t that the way it always is?  After the storm, the sky is usually AMAZING!

  13. I have always loved black and white over color. I just think it tells more of a story than color does. And your photos are always fantastic! Glad everyone was ok but so sorry about the loss of the homes.
