Stream of Consciousness Day - #HAWMC Day 12

Stream of Consciousness Day. Start with the sentence “_______”just write, don’t stop, don’t edit. Post!

Tonight is Crazy!  We are having a horrible thunderstorm complete with lightening.  Now for some of you this is nothing interesting or new.  Where I live we rarely ever get thunderstorms or lightening so this is an unusual experience.  Plus this storm is REALLY big.  The rain is coming down like cats and dogs (where did that saying come from?) and the thunder is REALLY loud.  The thunder is so loud that Happi came running upstairs, cried and went under my legs.  Happi never gets upset from loud noises like fireworks or earthquakes or (usually) thunder.   Little Lucky jumped up and began barking.

I went and got a flashlight because I thought any minute the electricity would go out.  I turned off my computer just in case the electricity surged.  I was ready just in case.  There was even an emergency breakthrough on the TV about possible tornado warnings.  Crazy!

About 10 minutes ago the rain subsided and I only see some lightening in the distance.  I guess we are through the worst of it.  Although they say it will storm all night.  I am glad we emptied some water out of the pond out back.  Now the challenge is getting our water-phobic dogs to go out and pee! 

Until tomorrow...

  1. I saw on the news that some areas of the country were getting these storms. My heart goes out to you all! They are a regular thing here in the south east called hurricane season but I HATE them so I can only imagine how you feel when you hardly ever deal with them.

    1. Thanks Deb. I just felt bad for the pups. They were sort of scared. We never lost electricity. Although I did wake up in the middle of the night worrying that the drain in the garage was plugged and the garage was flooding. It wasn't but I had a bad dream that it was. Too much rain all at once.


Would love to hear what you have to say!
