Storms

So this time it was our turn.  The storm we got last night, that caused us to turn off all our computers, dumped a bit of rain on us, and gave a great light show.  The Kiddo slept through it all, though.  I told my husband, if any of the thunder claps were going to wake her, it would have been the one that sounded like it was practically in our back yard.

There was NO pause between the lightning hit and the thunder clap.  They came at the same time.  It was so bright I thought a neighbors house or tree got hit.  I wouldn’t be surprised if one had been.

Then today we got a mid-afternoon rainfall.  The Kiddo and I sat on the floor near the back door (big sliding door), and watched it rain, while I had her barf bucket nearby in case it was needed.  Poor thing has a tummy bug today. 🙁

Anyway.  I don’t think last nights storm or today’s was nearly as bad as the one that went through the other part of the valley on Thursday night.  I checked the news and there weren’t reports of massive damage, only of some power outages.  So we fared better this time.

I wonder if the rain we got earlier today is the end of this storm front, or if something is going to roll through again later tonight?  I guess we’ll see.

Off to go eat while the Kiddo sleeps.  Her second nap of the day.  I hope she gets better quickly.
