As I sit here all dry and warm outside there is an immense thunderstorm occuring. The rumble of thunder is ear splitting and the flashes of lighting blinding. The sky is as dark as night yet there is an illusion of light and a very faint rainbow can just be made out.
The rain is pounding against the windows and bouncing off the pavements. I love thunder storms. It always makes me feel slightly anxious but in a good way. It is as if your very nerve endings tingle and the hairs on the back on your neck stand up. There is an air of nervous excitement.
As I look into the garden the dark dark shadows against the yellow sunflowers makes the colours so vivid and bright. They are dancing their heads to in the increasing winds that have sprung from nowhere.
I am glad that I am looking at this from the inside. I have had my soaking for the day. It was my daughters first sports day today and just as is was about to start a light drizzle started, which soon stopped shortly to be followed by the heavens opening and the rain cascading from the heavens. It was all good fun. Needless to say 2 races in and the event was ended.
