Boom, Boom, KABOOM!


The past week has been quite interesting in terms of weather. It has been raining at least once everyday, and I have found an odd comfort in the violent rain and angry thunder. Yesterday my friend and I drove back from a convention in Perioa and saw quite a few drivers seeking shelter underneath the overpass and bridges. Sadly one truck decided to speed up on a ramp, and due to that thoughtless action, his truck flipped over on the side. Not a great idea to speed, especially when rain is coming at you really fast on the express way.

There have been days these past two weeks where the sky will be perfect, sunny and cheery, and just within a matter of minutes, the sky will turn dark and gray and release everything which has been held in the clouds. Sort of like someone who has been keeping all the anger and frustration in just to let it out in a violent fashion.

Despite the tornado warnings, flash flood warnings and other weather warnings, nothing treacherous happened around my area. Today the weather is really nice and sunny. I'm just waiting for the skies to turn gray and Mother Nature to finish venting all her frustrations. I really hope she waits till I get home, b/c I didn't bring an umbrella. Oh well, if its one thing I learned the hard way, its Mother Nature doesn't wait when things are convenient for others.

Did I mention I find thunder, lightning and the sound of heavy rain comforting and breathtaking. Here is something else I found that is comforting.

I'm in Charlotte and we're about to get hit with one and last week on a flight home I got to watch a storm below me. I also wanted to note that I wanted to comment on the "baby bong" post but couldn't find a place to leave a comment.
