Looks like Frisco is going to get wet again. Oops...my cell phone is now screaming a flash flood warning.
Rather perversely, I'll admit I'm a weather junkie. I love storms, at least so long as they don't cause injury or damage. Unfortunately last night's lightning did strike two homes setting them on fire. But as I didn't know that at the time, I stayed up half the night taking in the sights and sounds.
My back doesn't like being prone for 8 (7?...6?) hours at a time, so I'll often get up sometime in the night and settle in to my comfy chair in the den to snooze for a while.
I had just gotten comfortable when the sound of rolling thunder began. It wasn't long before it was just one lightning bolt and clap of thunder after another. It was so bright I think I could have read the newspaper with the lights off.
Thunder seems to piss off the dog. With the first crack of thunder Luke bolted upright and ran in to the den to bark at it. K came in to retrieve him and asked me if I wanted her to close the blinds.
I told her she'd better not touch those blinds as I was enjoying the show. Then just as the crescendo built, it slowly died away after a spectacular 2-hour run.
The forecast high temperature for today is 84 degrees. :) This climate change thing is....umm....interesting.
