Drive to the Sierra Overlook on White Mountain road. Great view of Owens Valley and the Sierra. You could even hike White Mountain afterward. Could be rain or hail on White Mtn as well, so be prepared.
But then with the Lion Fire increasing again, the views may be smoky.
You could always hike to Lone Pine Lake -- T-storms shouldn't be as threatening there, and you'd be able to make an easier exit if there indeed is a thunderstorm.
hmmm... threatening weather, flexibility, plans changing... sounds like a normal marriage to me.
