Just a few more zaps from the heavens.

Tomorrow there’s a chance of showers and thunderstorms, I watched a show on The Weather Channel the other day about the dangers of lightning. Below are some things that I already knew, but it’s always good to review the info.

IF, we get lightning, I will refrain from going fishing, golfing, using sinks, standing near a window, using anything metal, taking showers, of course I won’t be going outside, or taking shelter under a tree, in short…I will be relaxing under the bed reading a book.

A little lightning.

I’m a big fan of weather…that sounds really silly when I see it written down here. I really do find storms interesting as long as they’re not too violent and lightning is FASCINATING from a distance. 

I’ve got more images to post from this same night, but I need to get my act together and dredge up some energy from somewhere. Can you tell I’ve cut back on chocolate?


It was a dark and stormy night.

We had quite the lightning show last night, I’m sure many of you experienced the same weather system. The lightning lasted for a few hours which was quite the surprise, we haven’t seen a storm like that in quite a long time.

It was a very good thing that the storm lasted that long because it took me FOREVER to figure out how to set my camera. I haven’t used it in a long time.

How are all of you???????

I hope all is well and that those of you in Texas and the other states affected by the horrific weather have all come through it with no harm done.

I’ve never really been able to step away from the blog before, I love blogging, but a little time off was just what I needed…new sights, new sounds, new ideas and new things to share with all of you.

I believe I said that I was going to put the camera down for awhile…well THAT didn’t happen. Ran around like a loon sometimes, chasing sea life as it swam down the beach. Tried to snap lightning as long as I didn’t hear thunder…( if you can hear it, the lightning can come from a LONGGG way off and zap you.) 

What else did I do? I spent a lot of time trying to resist the urge to eat chocolate. I did pretty well resisting the urge …but then I discovered a place that has amazing key lime cheesecake. THE GROCERY STORE!!!!
