Thank Ghu it's Over For Now

We had a thunderstorm tonight. We had hail. We had heavy rains.

I was stuck in the middle of it.

I find thunderstorms dreadfully frightening. I associate them with loss of electricity (especially after having spent my childhood in the 'burbs and in the middle of nowhere), vulnerability, getting burnt (my paternal grandfather was once struck by lightning and had 3rd degree burns from it), and other unpleasantries.

I totally do not understand all the people going "wow" and "oh what fun this is." I've been nothing but stressed out, worrying that my power could go out again, my house could catch fire, or a tree in my backyard could explode the way another in the neighborhood did when it was struck by lightning last year.

At least it's over -- for now.
