Stormy 4th of July

The 4th of July is a special time in Marquette - the days are long, dark doesn't come until about 10:30, and hot summer days are what we live for!  Inevitably, as we wait for the fireworks every year, the weather changes and the anticipation of the fireworks turns into confusion as the entire city wonders whether they'll be cancelled (or not).  Usually, it's 9 or 9:30 when 3/4 of the town has brought blankets and chairs to the beach to experience the show.  This year was no exception - a wonderful, hot summer day turns on a dime...
It was scary!  The wind came up and it rained.  Here's another view 
We weren't sure if they were going to have the fireworks, most people left - then in the rain, thunder and lightening, the show began!
