Photohunt: Lightning

Sorry, no lightning, the aftermath of a storm

They believed in the elements, and retribution. Terrible storms, howling winds, lightning flashes, cascading rain and thunder roaring were believed that the wrath of the Gods were incurred and the Gods were striking someone to death. One of the worst curse one could bestow on another would be “May the thunder strike you to death.” Hence, in this book, various scenarios of storms are narrated.
One afternoon, we had a bad tropical storm.
Lightning struck,
Thunder clapped,
Rain bucketed ,
Trees up rooted.
Flower pots tumbled,
Flash floods filled the basement,
I lied in bed with my duvet over my head.
