I don't like thunderstorms and I don't live in an area where they are very dangerous. I can't imagine being where they can advance into tornadoes. Do you get used to it? They seem to be getting worse each year. Your poem brought back the fear I feel when I see that first flash followed by the clap of thunder.
I hope this was not really your night. Your description is absolutly compelling reading, but also very scary.
Actually it was Anita. Very scary. Tornadoes were all around us last night. We got lucky.
As I drove to work this morning, I listened to the stories from the midwest and thought of you and your night. I had not heard the news when I ran downstairs to blog this morning. So, when I heard the news on the radio, I not only connected - I thought of you and all the people impacted by such scary forces of nature. I am glad you "got lucky" - be safe.
I hope any damage was minimal. Storms have been getting scarier lately. Pounding ice, Pebbles clacking,great description! Be safe!
Great word choice, Diana. You sure created the sound/feeling of the storm. Love it!
The combination of photograph and poem was so powerful. I loved the imagery in these lines:Waves ofPounding ice
Great choice of words, and tempo. Having lived in LaCrosse, Wisconsin, for 10 years I always get nervous in thunderstorms now, even in Maine where they aren't that bad. And your post has reminded me of something I was going to jot down as an idea for a post and for the life of me, I couldn't remember it today. Thank you!
So scary! I am someone who is so afraid of thunderstorms. I would not last living where you are! So glad your ok. Such a wonderful choice of words, I felt like I was right there with you.
