It seems I have lost all my sidebar buddy list....whatinthehellisgoingon.
Thunderstorms, and rain upon rain storms keep coming.......I love it. Except last night when lightning struck so close to the house I could almost smell it. Holy moly, that was close. We are going to have more of it tonight.
I have missed thunderstorms and a good rain over the years. I think we have had at least 5 years of almost no rain...just a dribbling here and there. This reminds me of when I was young living in the country, and we would always get a good amount of rain in the summer. Thunderstorms were the norm. Except...my mom was scared of them. When we were really young she used to wake my bro and I up to weather the storm. I don't know why...we were sound asleep, but I guess she was scared we would get struck my lightning. I think her mother did the same thing ... and scared the crap out of her...and then passed on the fear.
Later on I loved to go outside after a storm, and watch for the rainbow, and collect worms that would surface after the rain. The smell of the earth after a rain was intoxicating. And walking barefoot in the warm water on the sidewalks almost made you want to piss your pants.
Good memories. I was 12 and wet my pants.
