So, the weather yesterday was not like those storms, but for a few minutes there was thunder and lightening and rain -- a thunderstorm!
Anyone who lives on the Right Coast is likely also to be wondering what is it with her and thunderstorms? Southern California produces tremendous, sometimes devastatingly destructive Santa Ana winds, flooding rains when El Nino visits and wind-whipped fire storms that destroy homes and kill people, but we don't have thunderstorms very often. So, when we do, they are worthy of note. At least by me.
