We can get some pretty wicked storms around these parts. When I was a mere apartment-dweller, I found storms much more exciting than I do now that I'm a homeowner. Although there's still somewhat of a fascination with them, my stomach churns a little when the hail begins to fall or the weatherman reports 80mph straightline winds (or, God forbid, a tornado) headed our way. Yes, we have homeowners insurance, but that's not always a comforting thought when you're huddled underneath the staircase in the basement. Luckily, our house has managed to escape from the storms unscathed as we near the end of our third summer here.
Anyway. The point is, since we've lived in our house, I've grabbed my camera to snap some pictures of some of the particularly ominous clouds as they roll in. Because, you know, it's much less stressful to look back at photos of storms than to actually experience them descending upon your defenseless little house.
The photos don't quite do justice to the real thing, probably because I haven't learned the right way to take an outdoor picture in low lighting.
Which part of nature's wrath do you dread as a homeowner?
Oh, and don't worry, I'll actually have some other updates for you soon, including....
A budding musician in the house?
The perfect stretch of empty wall that’s begging for a photo display?
An office makeover?
And, a new addition to the family?!
