The thunderstorms are blowing through lately, most of them have stayed a fair distance away so we only see the thunderheads. Which is just fine with Golfer, because he’s still dealing with a rather traumatic storm in ’07 that rocked his world. It was nonstop thunder/lightning for about 45 minutes, right over the top of our house. Power went down, it was really dark, and he freaked out.

Sassy, on the other hand, thought it was the best thing she’d ever seen or heard. At 3, she had a limited vocabulary to express what she was thinking, but her enthusiasm comes through. She may be 5 now, but she’s maintained that same verve, and in fact has ramped it up a little. Man, she’s exhausting.

Thunderstorms in Summer rock. Unless a tornado accompanies them, in which case they do not rock.

  1. Poor Golfer…I can relate. I absolutely hated thunderstorms as a kid. I was in my late teens before I stopped cringing at thunder.

    We’ve been waiting and waiting for the forecasted thunderstorms to appear. Everyday for almost a week now they’ve been predicting them and so far all we’ve had is rain.

    I so agree that summer thunderstorms are the best. And if the power goes out, that’s a bonus cause we usually end up having a fire and making smores.


  2. I love a good storm!!

    I don’t even mind tornadoes too much. 🙂

  3. Oh the days of Sassy screaming “Punder Coming!” and Golfer just plain screaming. Of turning up the music really really loud attempting to drown out the sounds of the storms, pretending to sing and dance happily as Hubby held your terrified son.
