Calm in the Storm

After threats of thunderstorms and showers all week, yesterday was the first for us. I wish I was able to catch the purple of the lightning last night, but I did get a little video of the thunder earlier in the day. It was so peaceful and restorative to sit on the porch and listen to the birds chirp and the thunder peal and to watch the dark clouds drift by and the winds rustle the trees. I felt incredibly spoiled to have such beauty surrounding me here. I hope you enjoy the videos and find calm from them as well.

(I feel the need to preface these by noting that in several clips you can hear the not so peaceful sounds of Gracie sniffing around or our neighbor running a chainsaw or cars rushing by; but I think that somehow these "non-natural" noises contribute to the peace I experienced as life ran along around me.)
