I wrote on my other Alaskan Blog when this first started. Today we had a cloud go over us and we heard thunder from it! I love, LOVE the sound of thunder. This picture shows how much is going on in those clouds.
We rarely hear thunder. Sometimes in the mountains in summer we will hear a little rumble. It just isn't the same as the huge, window pane rattling claps I remember growing up. Kansas can whip up some incredible thunder! For all Alaska offers, I still miss thunder! Isn't that funny? I'd like to go into some deep theological insight into that, but I really just want to enjoy God's gift of Thunder! Once in a lifetime, I imagine!
