Last night was bananas.
I have NEVER heard thunder like that. Once in a blue moon we would get thunder in L.A. but only for a half hour or so. Not very loud and not all freaking night long. I can't remember any east coast thunderstorms.
The lightening was blindingly bright and seemed so close I swore our building was going to get hit.
My power went out for a while. Even with my ear plugs in, the thunder was so loud I thought it was the "end of days" or something.
As a kid thunder didn't scare me probably because I never tried to sleep through a storm like last night's.
I wish I had a boyfriend. I would have asked him come over.
Rome has a higher annual rainfall total than London. How is this possible when London have many, many more rainy days than Rome? Because when it rains here, it POURS. I'm talking sheets of rains, which floods some of the older streets in the Center.
At least here all we have is rain and thunder. Up north they are getting clobbered with snow. Some snow is fun but when you can't get out of your house, not so much.
