Mother Nature can be beautiful and frightening. Here she is toying with our Chevrolet Cruze in Death Valley.

These images have not been altered in PhotoShop. They remind me of the Stephin Merritt song Night Falls Like a Grand Piano, "Thunder sings a requiem. Lightning is taking pictures..."

But the question is: Has GM struck lightning with the Chevy Cruze? They moved 24,869 units of the popular compact car in June, resulting in a 10.9-percent gain for the Chevy brand last month.
