thunderstorm blues

sky ocean reloaded 2
We're having a thunderstorm just now. Actually, it seems to be fading, but the thunder at the height sounded just like someone pounding a door and stomping around in heavy work boots.



thunder knocking at my door

thunder knocking at my door

what you stomping round here for?




don't want your lightning or your rain

don't want your lightning or your rain

you bring 'em to me all the same




and now I hear you're going away

you're rolling off and going away

I almost wish you'd maybe stay

Last time I tried to sleep through a thunderstorm, I thought it sounded like Thor and Marduk bowling with hand grenades.

I am just here to applaud your simile.

sovay's right--this is a seriously awesome simile. "Bowling with hand grenades" ought to become a catchphrase.

I love thunderstorms, but we almost never get them.

When you do, it must be such a huge blessing. A wild tumultuous one.

so it's a love hate relationship with those storms, huh. I get that.

Actually, the truth is that I out and out love storms (though sometimes they're frightening). This was more of a persona :-)

The furious generosity of a storm. Gotta love it.

Thunder and lightening are a rarity here. One year I was in Chicago for a writing conference and I stayed up most of the night glued to the window in awe.

Same thing the next year in Maine visiting my husband's family, and then again in Boston about 6 years ago. What an experience!

Especially if you get to see lots of lightning forks--I love those. And for this storm, we got to see all the roiling, boiling dark clouds before the rain came. So awesome--in the old sense of the word!

We were out snooping around Weslyan last night as it rolled in, got home about 20 minutes ahead of it. I wish it did a better job of getting cool air in through the windows...

How are you this morning, temperature-wise? We're positively autumnal--which I'm not ready for just yet. (It's probably a momentary thing.)

Actually it's Thor, swinging his lightning hammer, while riding over the sky with his goat drawn carriage. ;)

You might say that the sky is a (*ahem*) THOR-oughfare for that mighty Norse god …. yeah, sorry… it's a terrible pun -_-

Sounds like you got the same storm I did. Glorious, wasn't it. And brief.

It was quite wonderful--and very loud.

We had some whoppers yesterday. I, and the fields, are pleased with the results.

It's nice when the heavens send the fields a treat like that.

We share the sky; the sky shares with us
What a perfect post to read first thing in the morning, seeing as how I woke to a thunderstorm. :D

We are storm-connected!
