It’s evenings like this that I’m glad that I’ve bothered to figure out how to use my camera a little bit.

There are heat storms swarming all around the city tonight. I was getting groceries earlier and one of them threw down a lightning bolt like a petulant child complaining about a lost toy. They’re huge and magnificent and sublime and completely without regard to the people scrambling around below.


I’m only happy when it rains.

    Stuff like this sold me on the move to Texas. CA doesn’t get pretty weather like this.

    I’m only happy when it’s complicated.

    I remember my senior year. It was sunny and gorgeous until into October. I was edgy and felt off. Then it rained and I was calm and all was well. I loved the sound of rain on the copper roof in ODB.

    Have you experienced an Okla. thunderstorm? Those are awesome and I miss them immensely.When we were in NY it was one of the first things my daughters mentioned that they missed too! Go figure. Maybe they missed running to my bed in absolute fear and spending the rest of the night cuddled with me!

    Don’t you have your sister’s poblano chili recipe posted somewhere? I cannot find it. Please help. Storms make me think of winter and soup! :)
