Lightning, Hail, and Lions: Another Day in Boulder

cat_t220.jpgIt’s been a crazy week in North Boulder, CO. Thunderstorms, hail, and lightning that split this tree like a banana. A few days ago, authorities shot a mountain lion that had wandered down off the hill and into the neighborhood—5 blocks from our new home. Last time I lived in lion country was French Gulch, CA; they used to come down and get a chicken or goat, then go back into the hills. We may not be traveling anywhere exotic for the moment, but these events help to keep Boulder weird.
