Lighting up the Night

Lighting up the Night

As we climb out of Austin and into the face of a soft dusty orange sunset trapped between layers of cloud, flashes of brilliant light draw our attention away from the horizon. Over the wing, we see a single thunderstorm erupting in rapidly sequenced bolts of lightning that illuminate the folds of cloud from within and without. From a respectful distance, the light show is fascinating as it appears to be set to some music we cannot hear. We await the chorus and another round of lights and gradually turn back to the serenity of the sunset.
