Days like today…

Today is… Thunderous.

Wet, rainy, wind-blown, lightning-flashing thunderous.

The downpour moves across the landscape in waves coming straight down in big, fat drops to hammering the world at a steep angle, as the trees sway and bend to the whim of the wind.

I am fond of days like today.

The dark and damp makes me grateful for a cozy house and a hot beverage as I sit here at the desk with only the glow of the dual monitors and LED strip light illuminating me.

No radio.

No TV.

Only the click of fingers on the keys, the burble of the water in the cats’ fountain, the hum of the duct fan as heat blows up from the furnace…. and the hiss and rumble of the storm.

Even the songbirds aren’t making as much noise today as they shelter beneath the front porch and in the Black Hills Spruce outside the office, hiding from the pummeling rain.

I like days like today.

  1. It sounds like just the kind of day, and circumstance that I enjoy. Glad you got to experience it

    So poetic! Reminds me of days sitting quietly on the steps to Grandma’s attic, listening to the drumming of the rain on the roof. Hmmmmm – yea, nice.

    Our day is intertwined. We sit here nude working in our home office at our separate computers, the blinds are open, the halogens are on. The day is dark, warm and humid. A thunderstorm looms in the distance, the low rumble of thunder gives the sound of my subs in our theatre room during an action scene. It’s a day for hot chocolate and coffee laced with Irish Cream, which no doubt adds to our boldness as the occasional car drives slowly by hoping to glimpse our openness.

    I love days like that, too… Wish we got more of them in Northern California… 😦

    • We were in drought last year. March had temperatures in the 80s – this year, we barely broke 40’s in March and this morning I awoke to more snow on the ground. We need the moisture, and even in years past when we got a LOT of moisture – I reminded myself that the Great Lakes all need refilling as well, so we still need it.

      I definitely appreciate a good storm. Today is more rain on and off, tomorrow – storms, Friday – snow… LOL Ahhh Spring in Wisconsin.
