I heard we are in for a severe thunder storm, and I guess it's true, since I hear some rumblings outside. That's ok, I really like the sound of storms. I just love rain, period. After spending 17 years in San Diego, where we just didn't get much rain at all - average rainfall was 10 inches, and many times we didn't get that much all year - I'm in heaven here in Maryland where we get lots of rain and some snow (although this year we had a lot - 81 inches!)
