When the big storm moved through Saturday afternoon and lightning was hitting all around, I turned off the computer and TV and decided to drive through the Vicksburg National Military Park to see how the storm looked from there. Here are some images I captured while riding through the park.
The most mesmerizing sight I have seen in Vicksburg in a long, long time occurred while the storm was at the top of its fury. I had made it to the Wisconsin Monument and it was remarkable to watch the water run down the many steps leading to the top of the monument. The waterfall it created was magnificent! I did not get a photo because I could not roll down my window, but a photo would not have done it justice. I guess it's one of those things you just have to see in person. I am glad I did.
