The Thunder Storm

This afternoon I posted

As we sat down to dinner this evening flashing lightning, crashing thunder, and a precipitation tattoo on the Velux window overhead heralded relief from the pressure headache that had beset me all day. The threatened storm had broken.

Dinner consisted of Becky’s tasty linguini Bolognese with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Ian drank Moretti; Dillon drank Cider; and I drank more of the Swashbuckler.


  1. We had a very large thunderstorm last evening Derrick. Multiple lightning flashes in one go never seen so much lightning. Storm over our heads Spectacular to watch it lighting up All the sky..
    Then precious rain.. torrential.. the grandees drank well. ??

  2. Sounds dramatic! HA! πŸ˜‰ Kinda’ like Dinner and a Show! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ Your description of it is vivid and ignites the senses.
    We’ve had a lot of rain from July on…soon it will lessen. We’ve had the best rains we’ve had in several years.
    (((HUGS))) πŸ™‚

  3. It was a hell of a storm here. I slept through it but my wife said it was like the Frankenstein film, where the lightning is so strong that it allows the Baron to attempt to bring the creature to life.

  4. I am glad the pressure drop relieved your headache, Derrick! We don’t see many thunderstorms in our immediate area. They seem to go around us, though we can see and hear distant lightning and thunder. Hail and possible damage associated with these storms is what we fear most.

  5. We used to get so many thunderstorms here in the summer, but I don’t think we’ve had one this summer. That or rain although it’s supposed to rain tonight and tomorrow. Hope your head is feeling better, Derrick πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much, Alys. This has only been occurring in the last couple of years. We have had much more of this kind of weather, so I don’t know whether it is age related or not.

  6. Thunderstorms can be delightfully dramatic – we get ever fewer in my part of the world – and cleanse the air beautifully. Your description of this one is great.
