We (along with most of the country) have been experiencing HOT weather. Late Sunday afternoon a GREAT (violent!) storm blew through. It was SO cool! Lots of wind, lightening and thunder as well as lots of rain. There was one bolt of lightening so close I thought it hit between the two houses. It was so close I screamed and the hair on my arm stood up! YIKES! Poor Jaxon was terrified, mainly cause his momma was yelling.
Boaters on the River had to make a break for it because the storm blew in so quickly. I got a couple pics of jetskiers running inland. SCARY!
Anyway, when the BIG lightening hit, we lost power. SURPRISE! Actually, we loose power when a ship going by blows his horn. Its THAT sensitive.
Thankfully, the storm blew out as quickly as it blew in and is wasn't long before we were looking at cooler temperatures and clear skies. Of course, without power we all met in the front yard and chatted. It was Lovely. I still have my windows open, enjoying the breeze.
At one point, I called the electric company and while the crews were working on the problem, they had no clue when we would get it back. It really wasn't a big deal, except that without power, we don't have water, without water the toilets don't flush. That could be a problem! lol
After the storm.
Sitting outside with the family, Jaxon on my lap, watching the clouds skitter over the sky, it was so peaceful that when the tide turned, we HEARD it. The water kinda ripples when the water starts back in. Very cool!
And then the power came on and everyone ran into their homes to watch TV, check emails or post to facebook (that was me!)
