After that beautiful moon last night, those of us here in the Pacific Northwest were rudely awakened about 2:15am by the loudest thunder and heavy rain. I thought we'd been bombed or the world had come to an end~my whole house shook. And it was raining so hard (but only for a few minutes) that it was like a fire hose was aimed at the house.
The storm continued for about an hour and a half....and we all woke up to slightly cooler temperatures this morning. Even at noon, it's still alternating between overcast and sunshine and I'm glad to report that the temperature is below 80* for the first time in many days.
When Gabi decided it was time for her breakfast, I got up and opened up the windows and front door and turned on the fans..trying to cool the house down. It was still over 85* in my bedroom and in the living room, even after the little storm.
I haven't heard the local news yet today so I don't know if there was any damage or not from the lightning. I was counting 3 seconds from the flash to the thunder....and I believe each second is the equivalent to 10 miles. Is that right ??
Anyway, the world didn't come to an end..so I guess I should get busy doing something. Until next time, Linda
