Dept. of Nature is a Little Scary

Weather Watching 

Sitting in a coffee shop in Evanston, drinking chocolatey coffee, eating something that's waaaay too chocolatey, and watching the storm that caused officials to evacuate Lollapalooza downtown The lightning bolts are impressive and the constantly pealing thunder is both unsettling and wonderfully reassuring  We're really not in charge are we? As I said .. unsettling, yet reassuring

Oh great. I think we're getting that one tomorrow. Guess I'd better batten down the hatches.

Did you ever get the storms, by the way? (I thought I responded before, but discovered that my Blackberry tricked me into sending a separate comment. Duh.)

We did, but the worst of it went around us. I understand they had a downburst somewhere in the area that was so damaging, the residents thought it must have been a tornado, but here we just got a little rain. Which we'll sure take at this point. :-)

If it's any consolation, the storm was short. It did fry our router, though; so we're off to the computer store to get a new one. (I'm typing this from BB's 'puter, which is hardwired into our cable service, lucky him.) Good luck with your weather watch!

Lot of storms here, too...love the electric feeling of them and oddly, though they make me feel small, I am unafraid. So yeah. What you said...

Yeah, I love storms; one of the things I'm liking more about them these days is that their violence doesn't come with biases or axes to grind. They're beautiful and neutral. Good things, says the woman who's tired of dealing with people today.

It's OK ... ice cream and escapist skiffy television work wonders. Heh.

Hey Kaffyr, I was thinking of you yesterday. Some friends were over with their daughter who, it turns out, happens to be a huge DW fan.

Yay! Another young convert to The True Faith.

Hope your week started well, and continues that way!

I've always loved thunderstorms (although I think that one sounds a bit extreme). They are quite rare in my hometown, so I always turn on my childlike wonder when we do get them. Of course, now I'm in SE Asia and it's rainy season, so we often get more than one a week - but I still haven't gotten tired of them!

Oh, aye, I imagine monsoon season would provide you a tremendous number of thunderstorms. And I guess that it's statistically possible to get tired of them ... but I'm not sure I could, even then!
