Holy crap that storm we got last night was awesome! We lost power very briefly, much to the dismay of Jared who has been deep into playing Fallout 3. His anguished "nnnnnoooooooooo" when the lights went out was epic! We sat on the patio watching the wind howl in the trees. The rain was coming down in sheets but the air was so nice and cool! It was a little scary though. I started peeking over the railing until Jared told me to be careful about being close to metal rails. Course, he was sitting on a metal chair so he would have been equally fried if lightning had hit us. I do think there was a strike VERY close by because after we went inside there was a clap of thunder so loud it literally shook the apartment building. CREEPY! But cool. I love a good summer storm!
