366 Project - Day 207 - "Abstract (Thunderstorm)"

July 25, 2016 - "Abstract (Thunderstorm)"

It's raining.

Actually, it's pouring.

We're in the middle of a thunderstorm and the rain is coming down so hard that the sound of it pounding on the roof is deafening... though not nearly as deafening as the thunder. Every crack of thunder is so loud and so strong that it is shaking the house and you feel it in your feet. The lightning is so close that - even before you see a single flash - there's a pulse of electricity in the air that you can actually feel hit your body. You feel the pulse... then see the flash... then the roar of thunder makes you jump backwards (or, in the case of my poor dog, it sends her cowering against my legs shivering so much she is making my body shake!)

Anyway... this is the view from my front porch, looking out at the birch trees in our front yard. The screens are soaked - but even if you duck you hear out the door you cannot see too far. The rain is that "thick".

Personally, I kinda like this weather. Something about it makes me feel "alive"!
