crazy thunderstorm!

This is monsoon season in Vegas...I didn't know until we moved here that the U.S. even had monsoons...apparently we do! Anyway, yesterday this huge thunderstorm rolled in to our neighborhood. It POURED for a good 15-20 minutes. This is very very unusual for here. Rain was gushing off of everything. It was pretty awesome. Me and Kate watched some of it out our patio window. There was also thunder and lightning. Kate wasn't so sure about the thunder (especially once I put her down for her nap). I called Jason at work just to make sure he wasn't driving or didn't have to drive anytime soon and while I was talking to him I saw lightning strike the ground, or at least it looked that way. It was accompanied by a huge boom so I'm pretty sure that's what I saw. Then later on the news that night they said a mom and her child had been struck by lightning in our area...I'm wondering if that's what I saw? Pretty creepy. This thunderstorm just reminded me of the awesomeness and power of our God. He's the One that commands the rain, thunder and lightning...pretty amazing!
