It's been a while since the sleepy town of Hilo has seen rain like this. The lightning that was on display this evening was nothing short of spectacular and the constant rumble of thunder in the distance was quite soothing. The sky is glowing orange from the combination of the low level clouds and street lights. As much as this is supposed to be a storm, I find it quite soothing and relaxing. Hilo rain is always a welcoming comfort for me...reminds me I'm in paradise.
