Was that an explosion?

Last night I was jolted out of my bed at 3 by what I thought at first was a loud explosion but then heard rumbling and realized it was thunder. A second later Kawika came in and said mom it sounded like a loin roared in my bedroom. Kalei who was already sleeping in my bed(little stinker) got scared and was covering her ears and tried to hide under the covers. The storm stayed right over us for at least 15 minutes, there was not even a second between the lighting and thunder! It was so loud our windows were raddling and the neighbors car alarm went off. Kalani and Kaili slept right through it(I still can't figure out how). I asked Kaili this morning if she heard the storm last night and she said "No I was wide asleep!" Now that's I trick I have yet to see. Even though it was a rude awakening I still love it when it storms here. The rain is one thing I really miss.

I remember those AZ storms. I loved those too. I miss the rain storms from home too. Mike and I were just talking about that the other day. I also miss the feeling of being wide asleep too!!! Hilarious!

It's raining here in SLC tonight. I love it. But the thunder and lightning is way more scary than I ever remember it being back home. What's up with that?

I love the storms in AZ. This one sounded scary though! I just love the cute ways kids say things. Kaili is so cute.

For the two years we lived in Peru I think it rained exactly 2 times. Since we have been in Caracas, it has rained nearly everyday - it reminds of Hawaii, you know short bursts of heavy, liquid sunshine. I love the rain too and had forgotten how much.

That was one of my favorite times of the year, MONSOON season. I loved the rain there, and it was one of the things I missed about hawaii.
