It sounded like a plane crashed. I don't think I've ever heard thunder that loud before.

I'm in southvan and lightning hit really hard between 5:05 - 5:10 ish. The lights in my house went out for a couple of seconds, and then came back. I was in the back of my house and looked to the front and saw nothing but blue glow. I'm assuming it hit pretty close.

I was on the back deck barbecuing. Needless to say, I barbecue in some horrible weather. Oh well. I wanted food and the only way I know how to cook it is by fire.

What I made today was cream cheese stuffed chicken breast with garlic bread (on the grill nom nom nom). I didn't give a fuck what kind of weather was happening, I was gonna flip it every 3 minutes and put sauce on that fucker every 3 minutes. Somethings are just more important than your own well being, one of them being the magical moment that occurs when cheese of any kind meets meat of any kind.


I did think the world was coming to an end when the thunder hit right after that lightning. Scared the crap out of me haha.

holy crap is the weathers been weird today.

raining in the morning, sunny in the afternoon, awoken from a awesome nap in the early evening due to a thunder storm, and then it turned into a blizzard.

it seems to be calm now.
