Thunder mood

The thunder is rolling in. If this breaks into a storm, it'll be our second one today. After everything that happened tonight, between my mom almost burning the house, a leak in the basement of indeterminate origin... Oh, hell, let's make it everything that happened in the last 48 years, I should be in a really really bad mood. But, damn! Something about the sound of thunder just fucking erases it all and really makes me feel good. As in, something in between exhilarated and orgasmic. Yeah, that good.

Thunder (and lightning) is comparatively rare here in the atmospherically rather sedate Bay Area. When you do hear it, though, it's nearly always an occasion that's remarked upon. I remember standing in line for the "casual carpool" at the local transit station one morning when there was a single rolling, roaring boom of thunder. Everyone was buzzing about it afterward -- almost as if there'd been an earthquake.
