In all ways, it had been a pretty nondescript day. The same old barn chores, same old goats, same old household tasks. Cloud cover moved in during the afternoon; nothing new there. Ho hum. At the appropriate time, I put the kids to bed in barn and coop without incident while it was still daylight. Haven't needed the wood stove for a couple of days but the temp started dropping. Had I not stepped out on the porch for wood, I would have missed this spectacular, unusual cloud formation and fire in the sky. The day might have been blah, but the finish was a big bang.
