Storm Report

Unless you drank a box of wine, you couldn't have missed the box of rain last night.

We don't particularly like nature, and no one likes being woke up, but it was a pretty good show.

Our bedroom window faces west, and the western sky was lit: silver, orange, blue, alternately; sometimes at once. Then black, which is normal, but was dramatic, for the contrast. It seemed extra black.

It was better than rock-show lights, because it was real.

Trees swayed and reminded us of dancers in Swan Lake at the Staatsoper - again, though, better. Maybe we like nature some.
