This is thought to be photo of the phenomenon know as ball lightning. I was reading about it the other day in the Extreme Weather book Claire gave me for Christmas. Then I started remembering that someone we all know allegedly witnessed ball lightning as a child. No one believed her....but I do. She will comment herself. Here is a link to more on ball lightning.
Our weather has been on the usual roller coaster. After two straight days of below freezing temperatures things warmed nicely on Sunday. Today has be much cooler and windy. Still very dry. Relative humidity earlier today was only 17%. Better run the humidifier.
