I've experienced storms in several places around the country but I have to say, there is nothing better than a Florida storm. Yes, some people think I'm nuts but nothing is more soothing to me than a good ol' downpour complete with lightening and thunder. When I can't sleep I have a CD of a thunderstorm and I play it pretty loud. Puts me right to sleep every time!
We had a particularly cool storm on Sunday. Dark clouds, nice breeze, lots of much needed rain. What made it so great was the thunder. It wasn't the loud claps of thunder that make you jump out of your seat. It was just a constant rumble ~ one running right into the other. I sat out on the patio and just really enjoyed it all. I did do a quick video
I did manage to catch a good bolt of lightening on the video and you can hear the constant rumble throughout the whole thing (along with a little commentary by Julianne).
I'm proud to say that none of my kids are afraid of storms ~ but they are respectful and know to take cover when one is coming. You'd never guess this was the middle of the afternoon. Also, the storms here don't last very long ~ maybe an hour and then the sun comes right back out and it's business as usual!
I'd love to hear what you think of storms or what storms are like where you live so please leave a comment... I'd really like to hear from you!
