Day 9: Drive-by shooting

Because American roads are so wide and straight and because big, automatic cars with cruise control are so easy to drive, it’s almost expected that you don’t give your full attention to the road.

So, with only a little shame, here’s a photo I took last night from somewhere along Jones Blvd.  Is it really any more dangerous than driving with a cellphone to your ear, or a cheeseburger to your lips?

There appeared to be storms on all sides of the valley.  This is the view of the mountains to the west – a gorgeous storm at sunset, which the photo barely does justice.  The skies feel so much bigger out here.

To the east the skies were much darker – and less pretty – with lightning cutting through the sea of light pollution every few seconds.  I’m not yet capable of taking pictures of lightning whilst driving, but I do want to learn how.
