We are having our first thunderstorm of the year tonight. I know – it’s weird having a wild, crazy THUNDERSTORM on February 28th! I think winter forgot that there is one more day of winter this year and it thinks that tomorrow is March 1st! It’s like March is doing a pre-roar of the lion coming in.
The lightning has been fantastic – followed closely by loud thunder which courses through my body and shakes my chest like the growling of a bear waking up from its winter nap.
I love thunderstorms — but the first one of the season is always special. It wakes me up, it clears the air, it makes my senses tingle.
Yes – spring is here – the rain has come, the lightning has lit up the sky – and the bear has growled!
