had a bee-yoo-tiful storm tonight. pressure's been building up all day, couldn't even get a breeze going through my room like i normally can, and everything's felt just a little more stressed than usual. watched a ginormous thunderhead grow bigger and bigger (the top of it looked absolutely amazing - so turbulent) and the lightning went non-stop inside of it (and caroline spent half the time dancing through the dandelion field). went back out later with aqeel to watch some more after it spread out. and it finally stormed on top of us an hour ago. crazy wind, heaviest rain i've seen here all year, hail, nearly constant thunder... so nice.
and it's amazing what a difference it made, too. suddenly you can breath normally again, the breeze is back, everything's just more relaxed again.
