MIAGD: make it a great day
We had two storms move through during the slumber session, and from all indications, the sky is demonstrating further meteorological productions.
There was drama. Yes, it was a tad scary for someone who’s terrified of storms.
There were loud and gripping sound effects. Oh, yes! Naturally, the moment I prepare to close the kitchen door, the loudest clap of thunder decided to go off cue! The entertainment value sank since the rain was too severe for a Gene Kelly moment.
I was actually impressed with the spectacular lighting design. I couldn’t decide if some of my favorite lighting designers, Jackson Gallagher or Tyson Miller, were at the light board, or not. My front yard, with its numerous solar lights, looked like a strobe light convention since ththe lightning’s fire was so rapid.
A number of props were added. Tree branches, limbs, leaves, flowers, and other debris jumped around through the production.
This audience member, who was also forced to participate by leaving his comfy bed to make certain the tent had not flown, or other things were secure, is feeling a bit worn, this morning.
This morning, the reviews are in. Some are describing fallen trees, downed power lines, damage to vehicles or property. There are some critics booing the natural production, but that’s to be expected.
Life has its share of storms, too. They pass. They return in different forms, and pass, again.
Appreciate and marvel at the storms. Don’t get caught up in them. The storms make us appreciate the days filled with sunshine, flowers, and contentment.
Make it a great day, Folks!
NOTE: By the time I finished writing this, the clouds had moved on, and the sun appeared. Also, I had taken care of securing smaller flowerpots, and other items, last night. Other then an overturned TV tray on the deck, nothing was disturbed.
