I LOVE REAL STORMS

I am here in Indiana right now, listening to the rain pouring outside the window. The lightning is bright and the thunder is loud. Just found out that there's a tornado watch out tonight. For those of you who do not know what a tornado watch is, basically the conditions are perfect for a tornado to form but none have been spotted.

It's been a really long time since I have enjoyed a good Indiana summer rain storm, and I'm loving it! The good thing? Atleast if a tornado comes in the middle of the night, I can see now (without relying on my glasses) to get myself into the hallway or into our crawlspace. The crawlspace is probably filled with spiders and that would be way too much for me to handle. I prefer our hallway, although dragging the mattress out to cover us is a pain.

I miss "my" Randy and wish he was experiencing this with me.

Enough ramblings for now. Gotta go to bed so I can listen to the rain and drift to sleep.

I forgot you were going and was wondering where you were! Have fun!

How fun. That is something I really miss about Arizona. I love the smell and feel or the storm too.

Yeah- the smell! I forgot how you can actually smell the rain here before it starts raining. It's not exactly the same smell as what's packaged in those glade candles or laudry detergent though. I think they cheated.
