I awoke last night to thunder shaking my house.
It was 3:30 in the morning, and it damn near scared the crap out of me.
As soon as I realized what it was, I was okay. In fact, I got up and went out to the living room to better see the show in the sky. As lightning storms go, it was pretty weak. No major flashes, just some sheet lightning, and then rain for about a half hour.
I've always enjoyed thundershowers. I think it's incredible the way nature just lets loose and shows you what she's all about. Amazingly enough - it didn't even wake my kids. I guess nature was having an off night.
I hope it repeats itself tonight - just not at 3 in the morning. (So fucking tired.)
I think I'll make popcorn.
