Summer Thunder

I love the sound of thunder.
I love listening to thunder as I fall asleep on a warm summer tonight. 
It's slow and rumbly. 
It reminds me of when I was little and would run and snuggle in with Kate when a thunderstorm hit late in the night. We would count 1 mississippi, 2 mississippi, 3 mississippi until the thunder boomed. 
I could listen to this forever.  
When I was younger I insisted on buying a nature CD called Summer Thunder.  I would listen to it until I fell asleep, while I did my homework, while I read.  It was so soothing and comforting.  
Martin even bought me an alarm clock that has a special thunder button.  
I wish we had more thunderstorms here in Colorado.  Since Kate moved to Florida she has experienced more thunder storms in a year than I have in my lifetime.  


  1. I totally agree!!! ~Elizabeth

  2. Sounds like good memories from thunder.

  3. I love thunderstorms too! And I bought one of those CDs when I was a girl too - I love the sound of thunder.
