Diary 8-12-15

August 12, 2015

Water in the air, Dear Diary, and droplets on the windows. A sunny, mild morning. But at about 11 there came a breeze, a temperature drop, a thought of turning on a light, and then I heard that “pitter patter” on the glass. An actual flash in the sky, and the rumble, many seconds later. A few more rumbles, without lightning. Then it was over.

The sky got lighter, but the lightning persisted; and suddenly, just before noon, a close and loud flash and crash, I momentarily lost electricity, and we got the soaking that I’ve been dancing for.

Then the sky began to turn blue again. The air had that nice fresh clarity, and millions of leaves perked up. Me too.

But it was very strange to be running around the house closing windows against the rain. First time in maybe three months.

Thunderstorms predicted for Friday. Weird.
