be careful what you wish for

A couple of weeks ago, I was bitching about the fact that we never have good thunderstorms anymore.

Someone was listening.

Ever since, every single day has followed the same pattern: sunny, hot, sticky, muggy and airless, all day long, until early evening, when the skies dramatically darken and we are treated to some of the best thunderstorms I’ve seen in a LONG time…. lightning, wind, hail, thunder and driving rain.

It only lasts for an hour or so, and then the skies clear, and it’s several degrees cooler, although steam still rises from the asphalt.

Very cool.

The Boy wants to know if it’s ALWAYS like this here in the summer.

I say, no, only since I lodged a complaint with the front office. πŸ™‚

  1. The storms are always my favourite part of summer! Especially when there’s lots of opportunities to get photos of lightning. =) The only part I don’t like is not being able to go on the computer, not be able to watch telly or talk on the phone, all at once.

  2. It’s probably because *I* left the country. Previously the storms confined themselves to Poughkeepsie. πŸ™‚

  3. Watch the weather radar on the computer. The storms all train from Providence to Boston, and points west, and miss the Cape. The Cape Cod Canal appears to be a natural weather barrier. I’ve got the lawn sprinklers going this morning!! Talk to the front office and have them send some our way.

  4. I say Kellski. Do you think you could have a word with Him-upstairs-in-the-front-office and get him to send a bit of HOT weather our way. We’re still only just warmer than Melbourne Australia and they are the SOUTHERN hemishere where it’s meant to be winter!!!
