Some people call it Christianity. I don't like that term. I'd call it Reality. Why? Because it's not religion, it's reality. I'm not into religion, at least not in the stereotypical sense of the word. This web site is all about showing you what the Bible has to say about the realities in your life. Someone once told this to me, and now I'm here to pass it on to you.

After watching the man-made fireworks in downtown Charleston from my hilltop vantage point in Spring Hill Cemetery, I was heading for bed when I got the 'radar alert' call from my friend Bill Coyle in Virginia Beach. Unbenkownst to me, a line of cells had suddenly developed in Ohio and were moving southeast, fixing to give the Charleston area another round of fireworks - this time, natural ones.

I made it to northern Putnam County ahead of the storms near Red House, and set up the camera on aptly-named Grandview Ridge just in time to catch the last cloud-to-ground strike these cells produced. The lightning fizzled moments later, and I was home by 12:30AM - making it an unusually short chase night.
