Dying Thunderstorms over Pyramid Lake Nevada. The story behind this one. Four thirty in the morning July 26th I was rocked out of bed by a thunderstorm over the house. Unable to get back to sleep, I decided to jump in the jeep and chase the culprit that woke me up. It was headed for Pyramid lake and so was I… Sadly as it moved over the lake it died quickly, just as the sun was starting to show.
