Was woken up last night around midnight by a thunder and lightning storm. These are almost rare occurrences around here. We may get only a few of these a year really.
I like them personally. When good ole Mother Nature takes over and 'tells' us who's boss, there's not too much we can do about it.
Our last dog, Jessie, was petrified of thunder. She would literally start shaking so much that she would freak herself out. She wouldn't settle until the storm had long passed.
Sophie, our present dog, slept through the whole thing. Nothing seems to phase her, except for people and other dogs. And then she gets all silly and demanding looking for treats or playtime!
Providing we are safely situated in our house and it is not a major hurricane, there is a certain 'peaceful' feeling I get when I am at the mercy of Mother Nature for an hour or so.
I know that she can and has caused a lot of destruction in different parts of the world as of late, and I do not mean to 'romanticize' these occurrences, but I do appreciate her power and potential.
