Last evening the sky looked strange, it had been cloudy and we knew it could rain, but this sky was a strange light. It seemed to be a dirty pink color. I always know that something is coming, a change in weather is very near. It wasn't long before the thunder and lightening began. Our dog was looking for a place to hide, the wind pick up and soon it was really storming. This storm was rather fierce, it came from the east, always worse from that direction. We got almost 2 inches of rain from that storm that only lasted little more than an hour.
It wasn't long before the thunder and lightening was upon us. The thunder was really loud and booming.
The girls and I just talked about things while we lay on our sleeping bags. The comment that most pleases me came from Cait. She said, during some major thunder booms, "Grandma, the ground vibrates when it thunders, just like when you feel the drum after you beat on it." I call this really feeling the heart beat of Mother Earth.
