The Old Man Is Snoring

Holy Moly we got a raging thunderstorm.  This thing came pretty fast and unexpected.  I was out and about earlier today and I kid you not I was staring at the clouds while at the stop light and noticing how clear and beautiful the sky was.  I hadn’t seen the weather reports so I was quite surprised when this thing hit.
 
The wind, lightening and thundering were pretty obnoxious.  I came out of my skin a few times after some of the thunder.  Good lord it sounded like it hit the house next door or something.  Even my cat was a bit spooked.  I was very surprised the electricity didn’t go out but glad it didn’t since I was working on a special project.
 
But… as I have said before, I do love the thunderstorms here.  Rain in the desert is fantastic.  Especially when it rains cats and dogs like tonight.  All that was missing was Rambo’s guns wrapped around me.

    It was a spectaular storm, wasn’t it!? 🙂 I sat on the patio and watched and listened as long as I could. Even when the rain calmed a little, the lightening and thunder show continued late into to the evening. The cooler temps. alone (after the hot sticky day yesterday) were a little slice of heaven.

    PS. My baby kittens were petrified, and the 7 yr old cat stayed huddled under the bed for a good deal of it.

    3T – love it! Love the cooler temps as well. The only problem now is that everything got so stirred in the air, I can’t stop sneezing today. ha!

    By the way, those kittens are so cute!
