Wouldn’t you love to capture Lightning in a Bottle?  I sure would.

Speaking of lightning… We don’t often have thunderstorms.  Our area of Northern California is, unfortunately, spared the fireworks.  I say unfortunately because I’m from Iowa where we have huge-ass (Tim) thunderstorms.  I can’t tell you how many nights I watched out my bedroom window, enthralled by the lightning, awed by the thunder.

The other night I was awakened at 3 a.m. by a bright flash of lightning.  A few seconds later hubby was awakened by a crash of thunder.  It was brilliant.  Unfortunately that was all we got.  Pity.

However, that same night, my cousin in Nebraska called to tell me that in the midst of a raging blizzard they had lightning and thunder.  Life imitates art.

In the Flesh, the second book in my Soul Series, is all about the magic contained in lightning in a blizzard.

Lightning in a bottle.  I wish!
