Lightening and Thunder

I love thunder storms. The gentle rumble echoing across the sky. Lightening can be a little scary, only from the point that it can be deadly. I usually don't fret about that, but it is in the back of my head. I love to watch the lightening light up the sky. To see those crooked lines brightening the night sky is mesmerizing. The smell of the rain in the air is so refreshing.

When this all happens at unknown time in the middle of the night, I am not a big fan. Especially when the thunder is so loud it sounds like a freight train running through your bedroom. Or the lightening so profuse that it keeps your room bright, even through room darkening shades. But, when the rain is so hard that is it washing away that rain stinks. This is all what happened to me last night. A big storm came through and woke me. I had to shut the window, to keep the rain out, and to keep the sound down. It was one of those storms that yo just know the power is going to go out, and sure enough, my clock was blinking when I woke this morning.

At least the plants got water.....trying to see the good side of being woke up in the middle of the night.


  1. Being awakened in the middle of the night is nothing new for you. It must have been loud! Did it wake the kiddos?
    Now ya should ahve had that rain barrel made!

  2. Hi moomy from Michelle & lizzy!

  3. I usually sleep through them, and love it...but the ones that wake me up are very scary. I agree.
