I've adored storms as long as I can remember. Proof? My favorite song when I was fifteen and sixteen and needed an emo groove was "Riders on the Storm" by the Doors. When I was seventeen it was "Black Sabbath" by, well, Black Sabbath. I'd spend hours sitting in my car in front of my house listening to the songs over and over wishing for a downpour.
When the power went/goes out it's only a bonus. Bring on the candles and I'm blissed out.
And now, my friends, it's hailing and pouring really hard...I must go and pay homage to the fabulous tempest gods!
P.S. Hail and really heavy rain on our metal roof is purely awesome...and loud beyond belief.
P.P.S. My brother is here from California and the thing he misses most about living here are the thunderstorms. This one's for you, bro!!
Thanks for "liking" my blog posts!!
