I knew we would be having a storm this evening because Vince wouldn't eat his dinner and it was still clear, hot, and dry at that time. We had a lot of lightning and thunder from this one and it seemed to be centered on our house for quite a while. The power flickered a few times, and the breaker that powers the computers and everything else in my office was tripped. Eventually the internet service came back, but not to my computer. This happened several weeks ago after a nearby lightning strike and I was without my computer for a couple weeks. They replaced the internet adapter or something like that and it wasn't expensive, but it took forever because they lost my name and phone number. I'll have to take it in again tomorrow, but at least this time it's a known problem. Apparently I need to replace the surge protector that the computer is plugged into. That's an annoyance but I do still have my work computer, although it doesn't have a photo editor, so my blog pics will be pretty much just as they come from the camera.

|Samantha doesn't hear so well anymore|
but she's not completely deaf and beside
this thunder could be felt as well as heard.
|This is Athena, pushing her way in for her share.|
I used to enjoy a good thunderstorm, but I jumped at a couple of the thunder cracks and felt like doing the duck and cover move myself. I had been planning to mow part of the pasture this evening, but that obviously didn't happen.

our current pack.
