Memory From the Lower 48…

Just having celebrated my first year as an Alaskan resident one of the things I mentioned I missed from my ‘lower 48 time’ was thunderstorms.  Mother Nature decided to send a treat my way in the form of this large Cumulonimbus (Cb) formation which I viewed after my ‘Take A Little Trip Back…’ music show on KTNA Monday evening.  I loved seeing the classic anvil shape to this storm and really admired the lighting from the setting sun.  Sadly it was far enough to the east such that I couldn’t see any lightning or hear any thunder but it was great to once again see a towering ‘thunderhead’…
