I’ve only lived here in the Pacific Northwest for 4 1/2 years, but I’ve never seen the crazy weather we’ve had this winter/spring season.
From a few inches of snow to a several feet of snow, to rain that goes on for days, to wind, to hail, to thunder and lightning storms that made me wonder what I was doing living here.
I’m not found of thunder and lightning. I can live with the snow, but not so much with thunder and lightning. A lot of it comes from when I was a kid. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, we had lightning on occasion, it bothered me but no big deal until I spent a summer in Oregon.
I was at my aunt and uncle’s home waiting for everyone come home. Of course, a storm hit. No big deal, I was actually sitting watching out the window when lightning went of and smashed right into the tree in the front yard.
I flew off the sofa, ran out the door to the neighbors house, shaking like a leaf. You see, in San Francisco lightning never even gets close to the ground. Ever since then I’ve been horrible about storms with lightning.
So the last storm we had, thankfully I was with friends who helped me stay calm, even though I wanted to hide under the table, and ended before we had to drive home.
Those few sunny days we had, Miss Penny just loved. Usually she lays in the bark, but I need new bark (it’s mainly dirt now) so she’s been lying on the concrete instead. Of course when she goes out in the morning to do her business and comes back with muddy paws, mommy has to clean her up.
So, of course, here’s a picture of her:
Have a great day.
