to come through. It was raining off and on thru the even. But monday the heavier storm's was coming thru. You know thunder and lighting. My dog's sure was telling me they was scared. When me and Ashley went to bed we had all 3 dog's. Even my youngest was with us. They goodness...
on a hilltop wearing just a pair of shorts, where you can howl into the wind and feel the release of all the pent up frustration of modern life, that feeling of being at one with the elements, battered by the wind and the rain across your bare skin.. Its one of the only times I...
for many years, even though I wasn't born there. One of the big adjustments I had to make was when the mid-summer thunderstorms would roll in.

g., Louisiana and Texas), I have heard plenty of old wives’ tales. My favorite one is during a thunderstorm, cover your mirrors, turn off all electricity, sit down and wait because God is talking.
I remember being in the fourth grade, thinking that God was screaming at me...
Growing up, and even now, whenever it rained/stormed, he was always on the front porch smoking his cigarette, watching it. I would always join him when he did, and because of that I've grown up loving rain and storms.

Only problem with it this time... It is right at freezing temps so there isn't much telling what our roads will be like in a few hours. But for now I will lay here and listen to the...
.. a low rumble that becomes louder and more frequent... a crescendo culminating in a loud crash at the end. The night sky is lighting up in spots as the lightning flashes. Soon I'll hear the gentle sound of the rain hitting the windows.
