Wonders of nature!

As the weather heats up, many residents around Lake Almanor open their windows late in the afternoon to let in the cool evening air. Recently that also means they will let in the sound of thunder as lightening pops from the thunder clouds around the area. Ominous rumbles sometimes, but the results of these late showers may be well worth the noise. Two days before this  June 13 thunder-storm, the meadow was a beautiful green with not a yellow flower to be seen. Photo by Gregg Scott
