Thanks, Lilsalmon.

I love to chase storms when I can.

My mom lives in Redmond and came through Maupin a day or two before the lightning... then she went to Sisters a day or two before the lightning and a couple other places that are now on fire due to lightning strikes.

While it is beautiful I have watched it start fires in areas where it took over an hour to get fire fighters to, and in that time the fire grew from a couple acres to a few square miles (a fire across the Columbia on the Washington side a few years ago... I saw it in my camera and called our sherrif's office to report it... took them 1.5 hours to get to the fire which was outside Plymouth Washington, and a fire west of Madras when I lived there that I watched from the Round Butte area).
