I’m back from vacation, and it was wonderful! The beach was warm and sunny, and it was fun hanging out with all my relatives and catching up. I am back to work, feeling very relaxed.
One night while we were in Florida, I had the most incredible experience. We came home from my uncle’s house at 12:00 in the morning, and as we got closer to the shore, we saw the sky light up repeatedly. When we got to the condo, we went out on the porch that overlooked the ocean, and we saw the most amazing storm. Out many miles to sea, there was this intense lightening storm, but it was too far away to hear the thunder.
We sat out for over an hour just watching this storm. I joked as we went inside that I wanted to see how it ended. There were about 7 flashes of lightening a second, most of which ran horizontally, which I don’t think that I have ever seen before. It made me realize just how powerful thunder and lightening must have seemed to early people. It is no wonder that they made up Zeus, watching this storm made me almost believe in him myself.
