We just had a major thunderstorm roll through. When the lightning cracked and the thunder rolled simultaneously I thought one of the trees in our woods had been struck!
We could feel the house shudder. Scared the daylights out of me AND the cat! I have the scratch to prove it.
From first scan of the neighborhood we all came out of this unscathed.
This has been a wicked summer already. When we first moved here it was like Camelot: rained overnight, sunny and clear most days, nice sunny winters to melt the snow and keep the car warm when you ran errands. Then my SIL and her husband moved up from FL...and the weather seemed to change. Lots of thunderstorms. Cloudy winters. Coincidence? Hmmmmm....
