This photo could be from one of our recent boffo electrical storms, but no, this was my view of the cloud-shrouded July 4th fireworks on the Mall. The clouds and fog played cray cray with the 'works, producing apocalyptic images. I watched from the rooftop of the Capella Hotel, where they hosted a lively party with (loud) music and delicious ribs and burgers. Lots of fun.
The photo below, on the other hand, reminds me of an electrified deep sea squid-like creature. Again, thanks to the clouds. Happy 4th, all.
