Obsession of the Week: Thunderstorms

I apologize for not posting this yesterday! But it's only a day late, and I'm still pretty obsessed with Thunderstorms.

A few nights ago, after a long heat wave of 90 degrees +, we had relief. A huge thunderstorm rolled over us and sent down lots, and lots, and LOTS of rain.

I was sitting in bed listening to some music when I saw the first flash of lightning and heard the first crack of thunder. And it wasn't the kind of thunder that was distant and soft... it was the kind of thunder that was directly above me and shook the house and was so loud it startled me. And not even ten seconds later I began to hear the patter of rain on our house. It started slow at first, and then it began to pick up. Soon, it was like sheets of water were falling down.

I quickly jumped out of bed and headed downstairs to go sit on our front porch. The temperature had dropped and the wind was blowing and the rain was coming down--and sitting there watching and listening to the storm felt great. More lightning, more thunder, and it seemed like everything was getting that rush of water it do desperately needed after several days of excessive heat.

It's pretty easy to enjoy the beautiful, warm, sunny days--but sometimes, it's nice to enjoy a thunderstorm, too.


  1. I'm glad that you enjoyed the rain. :) I agree with you completely on this post! I love thunderstorms also. It's been extremely hot here {North Carolina}, the weather channel has been predicting rain forever it seems like, but we have yet to get any. Hopefully it will rain soon. I hope you're week goes great!

  2. I love thunderstorms too, really any weather that makes the sky looks crazy and beautiful :)

  3. Thunderstorms are great :-) It is so neat to see the sky go from bright to dark and grey in only minutes during the summer time when the thunderstorms roll in and out quickly.
