WHERE does the lightning strike? It is wonderful to sit here safe in my home and watch the lightning show. It is scary, too. This storm doesn’t seem to have any rain. In the Oregon desert that is something to fear. Dry weeds and mountain to mountain sagebrush. I can see where it strikes. But tonight there is very little thunder to gauge the distance.

 

Just as I wrote the above paragraph it started to rain and there was a strong enough thunder to shake the walls of the house!

As I continue writing I am finding myself pulled into a peacefulness. The sounds of the rain on the roof. The smell of ozone and alfalfa fields intoxicating. The fear of fire diminishes with the downpour.

So where does the lightning strike? Where?

Silence is not my favorite. In fact, for the last week or so, my favorite part of the day is afternoon when the thunderstorms start. Even today, I had to shut down my computer after the one-one thousand, two-one thousand then BOOM! And shortly after we would see something like this:

lights our sky. I leave the curtains open as long as I can to catch the show. By the way, that was a shot from Pixabay. Wish I could take photos like that!

Anyway, you would think that when the storm moves on it would be silent. Nope. We have frogs that croak whole stories to each other the rest of the night. Only in early morning do they finish their ribbing.

Early morning is never silent. I think every bird in all creation hang out near our house. I take the dog out for the first ‘outside’ and the chirps and cackles and cock-a-doodles can almost deafen you.

Even when we turn off the TV and sleep for the night our house shakes with noise. Every person in this house snores, even the dog and cats.

I think I would freak out if silence ever overcame my world. I would expect an earthquake or a need to invest in hearing aids.

Thank you, Linda G. Hill for this Stream of Consciousness Saturday challenge.

 

One-Liner Wednesday


 

Yesterday’s sunset was gorgeous all the way around. Today is the same. (Sorry for three sentences–power outages, thunder and lightning distractions!)

Thank you, Linda G. Hill for #1linerWed!
