I've Lost my Edge
It caught me off guard.
Growing up in the midwest thru storms and tornado warnings it was just exciting and fun to watch the storms come on. The lights would go out the storm whistles would blow, you would grab your favorite things and the flashlight and head to the basement to play until it all blew over.
The evening was completely normal and we sat in our living room sewing and watching tv. All the sudden I heard an unfamiliar sound in the desert. A crack of THUNDER..we instantly ran for the front door to see what was coming and at that moment the lightening almost got us. I have never seen such a storm here.
Quickly we shut the door and took cover, literally...
My boy has never experienced a really good thunderstorm and this is how I found him once coming back into the house.
Shaking and hiding under his precious blankie.
We are in for more monsoon weather all week but boy oh boy have I lost my edge for a good storm...its been so long even I was a bit shaken :/
