Boy Was That A Rain

Last night we had one heck of a big rain. Complete with some of the biggest thunder bumpers I have ever heard. It looked like the fourth of July outside.

Every time it would thunder, all of the car’s alarms would go off because of the ground shaking. I had just downloaded a program and was burning a DVD when this loud BOOM went off and the house was flooded with darkness. Note to self – buy a flashlight. Luckily, because the PC was on, I had enough light from the monitor to find the candles.

It took about 5 minutes for the DVD to complete the burning process and then I shut down the PC. It must have taken another hour before the electricity came back. I was convinced it would be out all night. Then by accident I found that TVMAX was showing all of the Olympics of the day and stayed up a while longer to watch them.

I guess, because of the hard rain, I slept until 9:00 this morning. That is never heard of. I am usually up at 6:30. The morning is cool and there is still a light shower coming down. Gosh, what a wonderful day!

  1. Hi Rick. I hadn’t seen the video before, but I have read the story before. It is true that many of us go through this life not appreciating the simple things that we have.

    Thanks for sharing the video.
