The Billboard Project

So...driving down Commercial Street, we saw the giant UGLY as usual billboard but this one had flashing artwork. I had read about this in the paper and decided to stop for a look. I've always hated these flashing billboards, or basically any billboard period. This was different and I commend the person with this idea, they were thinking outside the box. I still hate billboards though.
We pulled over and sat back (with Meg) to watch what it was all about.
Interesting... wasn't great but much better than this...
We left just in time to take a short walk around the hood...change of weather brought these photos. Loved the thunder and lightening, also the light changing the clouds.
I rushed into the house just before the rain.
