The Storm of May 31, 1998
It was hot and humid all day.  We spent the day out of town and returned to find the power had been off for 1 1/2 hours.  No problem.  As the afternoon wore on, it became windy and thunder rumbled all around us.  When the sky got really interesting, we grabbed the camera:

We were very fortunate to weather the storm.
