When the weather is hot in the central valley and cool up in the mountain tops, sometimes it creates volatile weather patterns. Which we happen to love. We love listening to and watching thunder storms. So when we heard the thunder at our hideaway, we drove up the mountain to find more...or as Jimmy put it "Wash the car".We only found a bit of rain but no thunder or lightning. But this lake, which is normally over flowing with people in the summertime, was deserted aside from another couple walking along the lake shore.
The rivers were raging, full from the snowmelt. That's what fills the lake. Even in the middle of the summer, the water is chilly.

Do you like thunder storms or do they freak you out?
