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!

  1. Hi Janice ~~ I woud have had the windows closed and my head under the pillow. What a noisy storm !!
    Thanks for your comments – I hope your husband was not late for work – it was a long story about a fly etc.
    Take care Janice, Love, Merle.


  2. Hi Lee,

    Nope, I got it off the internet.

    Hi Jeanette,

    But I wanted to watch!

    Hi Merle,

    It was but it was great!

    No, my husband wasn’t late and he got a chuckle to take to work with him–great joke.

    Take care everyone,
    your Lady Jan~


  3. I slept through the whole thing too and since we had no t.v. then, I didn’t even know about it.

    Usually I wake up with the first crack of thunder. How strange.
