The Battle Rages

Summer and Fall are battling it out right now. We heard on the news last night we were in for some storms but they thought they'd be here around day break. Not the news I wanted, as I was due to be out driving by shortly after 4:00am.

Thank goodness they were wrong. This morning I awoke to hot and humid. Hot - 75degrees at 3:30am (it's the end of September, for cryin' out loud) and humid enough that I knew the rain was only delayed.

I made it to my meeting in time, and even found time to stop and see the gang I used to work with. Then, an hour drive south for a quick store call and home.

I was just curled up on the golden throne, sippin' a cup of coffee to try and get myself awake when all hell broke loose.

Suddenly the sky is BLACK. It sounded like the fireworks from last Saturday were going off IN my house. Windows rattling, even what few things I have hanging on the wall added to the clamour.

And rain? Holy Moly we got us some rain.

It sounds like a battle. Flashes of lightening that last WAY longer than makes me comfortable. Thunder I feel INSIDE.

It is cooler than shit. I jumped off the chair, quickly lit some candles and turned off the light. The satellite is out. No surprise there, so I sit here in the candle light with the sound of wind and rain as my music. The lightening and trees dancing in the wind my entertainment.

It could keep this up all night for all I care. Stunning. Incredible.

When it's over.....we all know Fall will have triumphed.

And that's alright too.

I miss cold fronts. Well, it sounds like that's what you got, but I could be wrong.... ;)

Sound and fury.

Glad you got back before it all let loose!
