Missouri Thunder

I absolutely LOVE the site and sound of a thunderstorm here in Missouri. The seem to come from out of nowhere and then pour buckets and buckets of water! Sometimes the magnificent power of the storms are a bit UN-nerving but most of the time, for me, they are a calming to my soul. For the most part they go as fast as they come which seems to be the result of this mornings down pour. I am super grateful for the rain we are giving. I can not imagine living in a place where you can go months and months and not see, hear, smell, feel the glorious rain! Today: I love living in Missouri!

Yes, the rain is calming, and it helps my kids to sleep in! Great for my garden also. We have been very fortunate this year...
How's your back by the way!?

You would never make it in Central Texas! When we drove to Georgia a few weeks ago we were all shocked by how GREEN everything was along the way, because everything here is always fried and dead!!!
