The Angels Are Bowling


A noisesome storm this morning, the pre-dawn air blue-white with lightning.

There is nothing quite like a thunderstorm coming in off Lake Michigan. The thunder cracks and seems to roll forever; the echo coming back, "Mil-Wau-KEE, Wis-CON-sin!"

Wasn't it Randall Jarrell who said, "A man who has been struck by lightning is thereafter seldom appeased by house current"?

Something like that.

Is that your picture? Incredible! It rained down here in Indiana today, too. I'm glad because my flowers really needed to be watered and I really wanted to take a nap today...so the rain made both possible. Now I wish it would go away so I can take Hadley to the zoo tomorrow.
