That is always a good storm, specially when the rain is so desparately needed.

I need a good thunderstorm with rain to stand out in...and puddles to splash through.

Ken won't let me stand out in the storm. He's afraid I'll get hit someday.

Addie, we're not in need of any more rain! I'll send it your way if you like. We've had some flooding and the river is pretty high. The skeeters are pretty bad because of all the rain too.

Shrek and I fight to get out the door at the same time. Way I look at it...if a bolt of lightening has my name on it, it's going to find me, no matter where I am.

The tree in our front yard got hit a couple of years ago so he's a little more worried about me. I like it when the hair on my arms stands up...too cool for school!

Scary, yes! But oh so beautiful! I've been tempting fate since I could walk.

It's storming here right now. Mostly thunder & lightning but there's sporadic rain. I love the earthy smell during rain. I can't get Simon out from under the bed though. He does not like storms.
I remember going outside to play in the rain and watch the lightning as a kid. I wouldn't do that now. Too many people have been hit by lightning around here. I'm tall and wide. I'd make a good target for it. lol

Well, send it to some farmland that needs it. We get rain at least once a week.
