I may have spoken to soon in my last post. This week has been dreary and rainy. Every day. I usually hate the rain, but on Wednesday evening we didn't have the typical drizzle. We had a thunderstorm. And I heard thunder... for the first time in over a year! I seriously have not heard thunder since I've been in Portland. I LOVE thunderstorms. I can't remember if I loved them this much while I was living in Texas or if the lack of them has made me love them that much more.
I was driving down the street on Wednesday as the rain began to come down hard and all of a sudden BOOM - a big clap of thunder! I actually yelled out loud, "Thunder!" One minute later I got a text from a Texas friend who also lives in Portland that said, "I just heard thunder!!! This is awesome!" Oh what I wouldn't give to snuggle up in a blanket inside while watching and listening to a big loud thunder and lightening storm.
So next time you Texans are trapped inside by a thunderstorm, don't take it for granted. Enjoy it for me!
