Because if I had a tape recorder, I would have put it up to my window and recorded the storm that was rolling through last night.

This wasn’t the usual Seattle storm (i.e. mist). No, this was a full blown lightening lighting up the sky, thunder shaking the buildings, hail blasting against the windows, rain going sideways, gusty winds tearing down trees type of storm. In other words, it was FANTASTIC!

Of course I could say that as I lay snug in my bed, not worried about water leaking in, having trees fall on my house, being cold or wet or even being pelted with hail. I said a little prayer of thanksgiving for that.
