I really wish I’d been able to spend more time in North Carolina.
When I arrived, it was hot and summery.
A short while later, we drove directly into a fierce lightening storm.
We rarely get lightening in Orange County, so it was VERY exciting for me.
After the lightening, the rain came down in buckets.
Eventually, we drove through the storm – which was a good thing.
(I’m not used to being in such bad driving conditions.)
There are so many trees in North Carolina.
Green, green, green!
(Our freeways look a LOT different in Southern California … they’re six lanes wide in each direction and all concrete and pavement.)
In some areas, the trees were starting to turn.
I took all the above photos through the car windshield.
I can’t imagine how beautiful it will be in 2-3 weeks as all the leaves turn colors.
I love fall.
I wish we got fall weather and pretty fall colored trees here.
It was 106F/41C at my house in Orange County yesterday.
