As a kid growing up in Minnesota one of my very favorite things was a good thunderstorm. I loved listening to the sound of the pouring rain, seeing the flash of lightening and the crack of thunder. Those are really happy memories for me.
Now I know in other parts of the country that a thunderstorm may not deserve a blog post, but let me tell you, living in the high desert of northern Nevada they do not happen very often. In fact that is one of the few things about the area that I don't like.
But tonight we are getting a wonderful treat, at least in my book. We are having a full on thunderstorm, with the pouring rain even, and best of all it's lasted a half hour so far. I could be having a moment of Nirvana.
