we've had some crazy weather the past few days. luckily no tornadoes...just tornado watches. anyway, last night we had the craziest thunderstorm i've ever witnesses. around 5:30pm i went outside to "collect" my kids and their bikes. it wasn't raining...just really cloudy and muggy. then there was a huge clap of thunder and the rain started pouring down instantly. there was no way to get inside fast enough, so the kids and i stayed outside and played in it for awhile since we were already drenched! it's funny...i had been pretty ornery the whole day, and just feeling "blah", but after playing in the rain i felt better!!! it was alot of fun, and not soon after all the neighborhood kids were out there with us splashing and playing in the mud. the video is one i did last night too, but around 9pm. i've never seen lightning like this before. it was continuous, and there weren't seperate thunders for each lightning...if that makes sense!! the thunder was just continuously rumbling without a break...you can't hear it on the video though.
