So stormy

April 29, 2022


Let me make this clear – I am not complaining about the rain one little bit. Last night we had a pretty hefty thunderstorm. We had opened the windows upstairs to cool things down, and I went to bed early. The storm started as I drifted off, and I wondered if I should close some windows. About an hour later, it really started booming, but the wind wasn’t coming in the bedroom windows. I checked the radar on, and it said the wind was from the west. I went to the west windows, and sure enough – the carpet was wet.

It was very flashy, boomy and rainy for the next hour or so, so I just stayed up and enjoyed it. However, it was getting late and I needed to sleep.

The sky was having none of it. The rain had slowed down, but the lightning was near-constant. It was like having paparazzi documenting our sleep. I don’t know when, but eventually I took my pillow and blanket and went to the floor in my closet.

Ahhhhhh…. nice and dark.

(I went back to bed around 3:30.) Anyway, I’m pretty tired, and we’ll see how all those little kids fare today. Happy Friday to us all.

    It’s been a while since I’ve experienced a thunderstorm. Heck, I haven’t seen rain in a while. It seems weird that Hawaii is so green and beautiful but it never rains.
