Roland Mesnier, who worked at the White House for 26 years beginning with the Carter administration, said when President Bill Clinton came into the White House in 1993, he had a “scary” appetite.
“He could eat five or six pork chops.” He recalls the episode of a strawberry cake he made one evening. Clinton devoured half of it all by himself, and the next morning he wanted more. ‘No one could find the cake,’ says Mesnier, who had a face-to-face with the distraught commander in chief. ‘Clinton was pounding on the table and shouting, “I want my goddamned cake.”’
This is a composite of several shots. (around 20 or so) There was a thunder storm last night and the lightning was awesome. Once the rain passed I went out to see if I could catch some lightning before it was gone. I wish I went a little further down the road to get a better view but I was too excited. Just past the left side of the frame was where most of the action was, but it was behind a bunch of trees. I still need to build the second version of my “storm box” (protection for my camera so I can do timelapses in the rain) I need to get on that before I miss all the good summer storms.
