Ok, maybe it’s not officially here according to the calendar; however it is here officially according to my standard definition of summer.

    Another true fact: I am in desperate need of — something.

    As I write this I’m sitting in a park pavilion early on a Saturday morning. I’m supposed to be taking photos of a kids’ triathlon for the newspaper, but right now, as the littlest kids are in the pool and on their bikes and running their little legs off, I’m not taking their pictures.

  • In spring and summer, weather patterns are more active as they move through Kentucky,
    especially in the afternoon and evening, resulting in more thunderstorms.

    These weather conditions also increase the potential for lightning to strike people working or playing outdoors, and even while they are inside a building.

    All thunderstorms produce lightning.  Sometimes called “nature’s fireworks,” lightning is produced by the buildup and discharge of electrical energy between negatively and positively charged areas.
