It had been storming all afternoon with heavy rain, thunder and lightning as the system moved from SW to NE. Around 7:30 pm there was a break, the late afternoon sun shown over the ridge on the horizon looking due West from my yard revealing the rising heavy mist below the ridge. Soon the storms resumed.
