Monsooooon!

Monsoon season is here. It's really here, I mean. Not just those wussy storms that have passed for monsoon storms the past several years, but the kind that do it justice: booming thunder, pouring rain that drowns out all other sound, non-stop thunder... It took me back to when I was much younger.

I remember when I was a little one, we used to get out the lawn chairs, open the garage door, and sit in the safety of the garage to watch the storms move through and drop their torrents.

Last night's front (or last night's three fronts converging over the East Valley) was just that kind of storm. Except I watched it through the picture window, instead, which was all the more impressive when the power went out in time to a flash of lightning. And that itself was made more impressive by the lack of incandescent lighting suddenly making the lightning look distinctly blue.

Ah, thunderstorm season, I love you.

Wasn't it wonderful?! I went to bed last night before 11pm and was woken by the thunder shortly after midnight. It was glorious!!! :)
