The pitter-patter of rain sounds on the roof, and the smell drifts up through the open window. Lightening fills the sky followed closely by the loud echoes of thunder. Thunder is always louder around here because we live so close to the mountains. They give it something to echo loudly off of. I love thunder storms. It's one of my very favorite parts of the Summer season. I love listening to them and smelling that yummy smell of rain mixed with the dirt of the land. Doesn't sound so yummy, but it's one of my favorite smells in this world. I love how the sky and world turns a burned yellow color just as the sun is setting and a thunder storm is moving in. I love watching the lightening as the bolts shoot across the sky. In a strange way it's almost beautiful. Of course loosing power for about 2.5 seconds was an exciting bonus for the night. It would have been better if it had lasted a few hours instead of seconds. I'm not sure why losing power always excites me, but it adds a little something extra to the excitement a thunderstorm already gives me.
I hope you had an enjoyable day & I hope you've been enjoying summer as well!
