Winter Thunderstorm

rainfall

I love a good summer thunderstorm…the sounds of the clouds shaking things up, moving things around, taking charge…the sound of the heavy rain cleansing the earth, soothing its wounds, nurturing it. Imagine my delight to hear all that tonight, in late January!  Usually this time of year we have snow, which is often much quieter (well, except for the blizzard winds that sometimes come with it – that’s a different story!). Given our drought conditions (I don’t think we’ve had any precipitation about 5 weeks), the moisture is especially welcome.
