It's Gorgeous!

We have had the most terrific weather the last couple of days, but I'm afraid I'm not going to sleep for another week. About 3 or 4 a.m. the most incredible thunderstorms roll thru, waking everyone in the house and completely freaking out the dogs. Patches spent the first night in our tub. We're all deficient about 3 hours of sleep a night because of it. Weather forecast calls for more of the same throughout the week.

One of the reasons I wanted to move to Oklahoma was for the weather. Y'all would just not believe the magnitude of these storms. The thunder and lightning are so impressive! But I could really use some sleep. It's tempting to take a nap right now, but another one is supposed to roll up from Oklahoma City in about half an hour.

If the weather doesn't kill us, and until I write again ...

*grin* Yeah, I LOVE thunderstorms...but I used to love them a wee bit more when I could just lay there and enjoy them without knowing that, any minute now, I was going to hear, "Mama? Maaaamaaaaaa!" from the other room! (I guess you don't hear that. Your kids are probably old enough to not be quite so scared!)
The other night - early morning, rather - I ended up with both kids in my bed! (Only because we're all too big to fit in one of their beds!)

LOL!!! They used to come running to my bed and I loved it. The dog would also jump into bed and shake, which wasn't quite as much fun. I miss those days of the kids climbing into my bed when they were scared.

I actually learned the hard way when they were afraid (storms, nightmares, sick) to tell them to go to the bathroom before they crawled into bed with me. Changed my own sheets one too many times.

Good Flea!! Blame the wet sheets on the poor kids!!

We had a Thunderstorm roll through the night before that left about 2 inches of rain to pay for the wind damage it left behind. To give you an idea of the wind's magnitude, our kids' trampoline was blown over our fence and down the road about 100 yards.

Thunderstorms in the city and thunderstorms out in the country have a different scary rating scale.
