Writing to the Rhythm of the Rain -- Fri., Sep. 14

Thunder: boom, boom, boom. Rain hammering on the roof: thump, thump, thump. Fingers clacking on the keyboard: clickety-clack, tap, tap, tap, clickety-clack. The rain has become a roar. No denying nature's putting on a concert tonight, with light show no less.

I love the sounds of a big storm and we're having one. San Antonio and all surrounding areas are under a flash flood warning. I wouldn't want to be out in this, but I love listening to it!

This storm is predicted to last through Friday night with thunderstorms and heavy rain, then a 50% chance on Saturday and Sunday. Could get interesting. (I keep saving my blog in case the power or internet goes out! Actually, the internet has gone out three times already.)

Consider this the end of my opus in tonight's concert. I will update you on our status sometime Friday. (The internet did go out at this point.)

Fri-DAY: What a storm last night! The rain poured and downpoured. Loud, cracking, rolling thunder pealed away into the night. Rollicking-good show.

Looking out our dining room window.

Today will definitely not be my day for the zoo. Instead, common chores like laundry and vacuuming will take over. Indoors...where it's dry.

Travel Bug out.

    1. We've been enjoying all day today. Heavy rain since we woke up. The RV park has sections underwater. Still enjoying that sound and we're active accordingly. Reading, blogging, watching TV...in other words, relaxing.

  2. Hope you enjoy the zoo when you finally make it there. The SA Zoo has long been one of my favorites.

    1. Hoping for Monday or Tuesday this week. Rain should be done by then, according to the National Weather Service.

      I can tell you, the storm has parked itself over San Antonio today...doesn't seem to be moving, not a leaf stirring on a tree and the rain hasn't let up one bit since early this morning.

    1. Well the ole batteries are recharging like crazy today. Raining since we got up. Not going anywhere. Couch potato mode. Nice for a change.
