It's raining cats and dogs today down here in cajun country! My dogs are running around with their tails between their legs wondering what all that loud noise is. My cat is well... just hiding. He's big and fat so I have no idea where he has found a hiding spot big enough for his enormous hairy body to hide but he's no where to be found!
We have tornado warnings, watches and flash flood warnings out everywhere within a 60 mile radius. Lots of areas have already flooded as it's been raining for several days here. I've lived through a flooded house once before in my lifetime and it's no fun. I feel for those people who are going through that right now. Luckily, we live in a pretty high area so hopefully we'll be ok.
I'm one of the weird ones though that enjoy stormy days. I hate tornado threats but otherwise a day filled with rain, lightening, and thunderstorms makes me happy! I love the mystery of it. I love how the rain feels on my skin and how refreshing it is. I also remember how fun it was to run outside after a big rainstorm and play in the puddles when I was a child. Strange, huh. I guess it's because I'm amazed at what happens up there in the clouds. How can it one minute be sun shiny and hot and the next, wet rain drops are falling everywhere. Snow fascinates me even more, unfortunately I rarely ever get to see that down here but on those rare occasions when I do... it's really magical. I should have been a weatherman. I can totally get why they love their job. I can only imagine how interesting it must be to them since they study why weather happens and all that good stuff.
I know people who only want the sun to shine and that makes them happy. But I'm just not one of them. Sure I like a sunny day but then the next day needs to be different or I'll start getting depressed! I need change!
I need to make this post short and quick as it's also lightening like crazy here. I could lose electricity at any minute and don't want it to fry my computer! I wanted to add some stormy pictures to this post but blogger is not cooperating. Bummer!
So I'll just end by asking what kind of weather makes you happy? And what's it doing in your neck of the woods right now?
