I did not get many hours of sleep last night. I don't know what time it was I started hearing thunder booming. It was strange. I heard thunder, sort of constantly, but saw no flashes of lightning.
The lightning free thunder went on for quite a long time.
And then all hell broke loose. A downpour arrived simultaneously with a lightning bolt with the thunder boom also simultaneous. It felt like the lightning struck right outside my window. This was then repeated several times.
Sleeping was not possible.
I see, via my computer based weather monitoring device, that the National Weather Service has issued a Flood Alert.
When I went to bed last night I did not know that a thunderstorm was in the forecast. And now I have to be alert about a flood.
This is all very stressful.
I think I will go swimming now and try to alleviate some of my stress.
