Gorgeous Rainstorms.....


full diva rainstorms here tonight--dramatic lightening, booming thunder and sheets and sheets of rain. Back when we lived in Oklahoma, this would have been cause to be under the stairs with a little radio tuned to the local weather. In our newest locale, we can admire the drama and glance at the radar. As 1 of 8 was babysitting for another family this evening and 2 of 8 was spending the night at a friend's house before traveling to a dance competition, we had to get a little creative with our date night. M brought take-out from our favorite restaurant, we sent all the 'youngers' to their upstairs regions and we dined in the formal dining room with the exterior door opened, listening to our favorite dinner music, a spring thunderstorm. We then retired to the back porch chaises to view the show from the eastern view. Not a bad romantic date, albeit interrupted from time to time by the weather phobic. We did have to entertain some questions about potential lightening strikes, floods and the outside chance of snow from the middle generation of children ("No, honey, I really, really don't think it's going to snow in the middle of April this close to the equator....")...
