I must confess that I almost called this post “All Hat and No Cattle.” That was until a loud clap of thunder nearly knocked me off my feet.
I ventured out for some errands this afternoon and took about 297 pictures of a very ominous sky that produced enough rain over the course of an hour to fill Gus’s water bowl.
I kept thinking it would storm violently any minute…
…and then that pesky sun would poke through.
Finally, I decided this was going to be another one of those big tease kind of skies.
See? Approximately 26 drops of rain.
I came out of the grocery store 20 minutes later and thought the sky was looking promising for a nice thunderstorm.
Now THAT is a storm cloud.
And THIS is terrifying.
No sooner had I closed the door to my apartment than the rain started coming down in sheets. I reached for my camera to take pictures and the lightning and thunder came out with a bang.
I crack myself up.
I saw the sky light up with lightning and immediately heard the thunder crack, followed by a little sizzling sound. I really hope the roof of my building isn’t charred. It was raining so hard that I don’t think any sort of flame could have sustained itself, so I probably don’t need to worry about the roof. I couldn’t even see the lower buildings in my apartment complex through the shafts of rain.
And now the sky is undecided about its next move. I think the sun is winning. At least I got a brief storm.
Y’all come back,
