Storm, thunder and lightning bolts greeted the morning here and went on for a long while.
It is sunny right now and hot but Mr.Weatherman promises more storms as the day goes on.
I can hear rolling thunder off in the distance. I love that sound if I am safe inside at home.

Isn't it interesting how sounds and smell can trigger feelings in us?
I find comfort in thunderstorms, the scent of cedar and pine in the woods and the salty air.
The sounds of dogs barking in the night, carousel music and lawns being mowed are all happy sounds for me.
The clank of the rigging on a sailboat as it hits against the mast... heavenly to me.
The scent of violets and lily of the valley.
Gas lamps glowing on the street, house lights reflecting off the docks into the water.
Lightning bugs (fireflies) at night, cicadas in the heat of the day, peepers(tiny tiny frogs) in early summer.
The call of seagulls dipping and diving on the wind.
The splash of a fish as it breaches the water and the gentle rustling of the wind through the trees on a lazy summer afternoon.
What sights, sounds and smells bring up feelings or memories for you?
Why don't you post about it and let us know!
