It’s that time of year. It seems we have a late afternoon thunderstorm every day. The kitty boys typically cluster closer to me.

Eek! That was a really big boom! Andy and Dougy are a bit tense.

Whew! Storm’s over! We didn’t get any “quarter-sized hail that will damage cars and homes” nor any of the “possible tornadic winds with gusts up to 60 mph” the National Weather Bureau warned of. We can relax again, at least till tomorrow’s predicted storm, and the one for the day after that, then…! It’s that time of year.

    • I hug them individually, as needed. I also hold them so they can watch the mayhem from the safety of my arms. It does seem to calm them down.

    • It’s almost a daily possibility, though, this time of year. Afternoons, most dau=ys, the alert comes on the television.

        • Those strong winds are no less terroizing, especially since they aren’t concntrated in a small area but over a bigger one!

    • Where I live, we stand by the door or windows while the tornado plows toward us. Some of us even make movies of the thing in case we survive. LOL!

    • June is fraught with strong thunderstorms and tornados here. Hailstorms are a problem for farmers and ranchers, but “townies” have to deal with damage to cars, trees, gardens and homes. It seems like my town typically is north or south of the worst of these storms. It isn’t because God favors us! LOL! We apparently are in some microclimate that spares us the worst of it most times. These storms can be awesome. Once, while on the road between Douglas, Wyoming and Harrison, Nebraska (northwest corner of Nebraska), we had to pull the car over till the storm stopped it was so intense. It was nightlike, the rain blotted out the sun to such an extreme degree, and the cars in front and behind us that were pulled to the side of the road for the same reason as we did disappeared from view in the sheets of rain pouring down on us. There is nothing quite as staggeringly impressive (in my experience) as a high plains thunderstorm! I imagine a hurricane could be more scary simply for the duration and the much highwer winds….
