Although I was terrified of the weather and spent a lot of time under the dining room table hiding from thunderstorms, I was amazed by the cloud formations in my book and by sleet and hail and tornadoes and hurricanes and frost and snowflakes. I would look at the sky and say, "That's cumulus." Or, "That's nimbus." Or, "That's strato-cumulo-nimbus." Pretty much, no one else cared, but I was amazed.
Last night, after posting those pictures of the thunderstorms, I was reminded of my old fascination. It also made me think how wonderful it would be if every night, there would be a nice little thunderstorm between 2:00 a.m. and 3:30 a.m.
Wouldn't that be heavenly?
Here are a couple of links to more storm photos:
