Squirrel on a wire, stuffing his cheeks with Palm flower pods, July 1, 2014
Taken on the morning AFTER...
The Queen Mother of All Lightning Storms
Not a drop of rain
It was NOT a dark and stormy night.
The sun was shining, the birds were singing
The dogs were sleeping
The humans were watching a movie on TV
SUDDENLY.. KA BAM! Ka Bam!
Baby ran for her condo in fear
Daddy did nothing...
KA BAM! the windows rattled, the pictures shifted on the wall
AND THE POWER WENT OUT...
Daddy sat up to attention NO TV????
We have been through many storms, but never this much lightning right on
top of our house, the bolts were out the front, the back and the side
and the noise went on for about 40 minutes..
I found a video on YouTube which is much like ours.
NO! Mama did NOT take a video, she huddled on the sofa
No damage done, no rain either. But we have already had our
4th of July Fireworks.
We sat in the semi dark with no electric, which means NO AC... it was 92 degrees (33 c) outside at 7:20 when the storm hit.. Lightning Loves Extreme Heat and boy do we have it...
Bob said: lets pretend we are back in the 50's... what did we do back then. Neither of us could remember.
he came up with riding bikes, I said hide and seek...none of which we did...
We went to bed MINUS AC....I said i know this is all in my mind, but I feel like I can't BREATHE.... he said...That's all in your HEAD... I said.. I just SAID that..
I kept saying... please don't hit a tree, please don't hit a tree... we have lost two and it cost thousands and we have SEVEN MORE...
Turn this up LOUD because this was LOUD LOUD LOUD
