Just call me Electric Woman!

Life is not messured in the number of breaths you take,
but in the moments that take your breath away.

Here’s a moment that took my breath away.

I couldn’t post for most of last week because we were having an electrical storm for three days or so.

I even had to turn off the computer so a lightening strike wouldn’t fry it.

I went to bed one night and opened the window curtains so I could see the light show that mother nature was putting on. Then I thought it was over and I was disappointed.

“It figures” I said out loud “just when I wanted to watch and it has to be over.” So I closed my eyes, and lay down my weary head.

And just then I heard a loud crack, and when I looked there was another even louder crack!

And it looked like two slightly canted eyes were looking back at me. I think it was two edges of lightening coming at me, how they didn’t come though the open window and get me I haven’t a clue.

Then kaboom! The house was surrounded by flashing light.

Then the windows on the entire house rattled, and I noticed that the hairs on my arms were all standing up.

And my daughter slept through the entire thing–noise and all!
