This is going to be a super short post because the storm is brewing big time outside my window. Usually by mid-April, we’re hitting the warm, smooth weather here in N. California. But this year (and last, actually – maybe usually isn’t the right term anymore LOL) we’ve had a lot of rain – and tonight, thunder and lightening. I’m typing with about 215 lbs of dogs on my feet (all three are trying to crawl into my lap) and a kid doing the freak-out dance of worry, wondering if all her electronic toys are charged enough to withstand a possible power outage. Can you tell thunder and lightening are a rare thing around our house?
I’m not as nervous as my dogs about storms. Nor am I as freaked about preparing as my kid. In a way, I really enjoy the power and elemental beauty of the lightening dancing across the sky (I like it better when the dogs hide under the bed instead of my lap, though). I’m a little irked at having to shut down my computer because I do have a lot of writing to do, but don’ think Mother Nature is as worried about my deadline as I am So I guess instead of writing this evening, I’ll be soothing puppies, explaining the effects of hot and cold not sharing the sky well, and watching the show through the back windows.
So what’s your storm comfort zone? Are you totally blase about Mother Nature’s moods? Or do you worry when the weather shifts (btw, if it was snowing, I’d be worrying up my own storm. So my lack of freaking is limited). How’s the weather where you are right now? Is anyone in shorts yet?
