Around 3:30am this morning, a loud and bright thunderstorm rolled into our sleepy little town. Needless to say, our kitties didn’t like the noise because the three of them were on me like a blanket. The storm continued throughout the morning, and subsided a bit around 8:00am. Then, every couple of minutes, thunder loudly crashed. These kinds of storms are strange to me because the thunder crashes are usually spread far apart. This was one crash after another until around 11:00am.
Luckily, we didn’t lose power. My broadband Internet connection, though, has a very LOW reception right now due to the heavy rain and thick cloud cover. I had no reception at all when I attempted work first thing this morning. So, because I’ve gotten a late start, I’m planning to work late into the night in order to keep everything straight and meet my deadlines on time. I can tell the sun wants to come out, though, because the clouds are brightening.
In the meantime, though, I’m going to close the blinds and turn on lights to create my own “sunlit” environment. Winds are picking up, and the heavy rain has turned into light misting. This kind of gloomy weather beckons me to sleep, but I can’t. It’s Tuesday, yes, but it feels like Monday!
