Utah has been experiencing some uncommonly wet weather this Summer... thus far. I know that most of the population out there is aching to have the really, really hot weather that comes from living in a dry climate. However, you that know me and have known my blog posts know that I am a lover of the rain. Indeed, I *heart* an overcast sky like I *really heart* a milk chocolate dove bar. I secretly long for the days when Summer comes to an end. I long to see the misty clouds draped over the rough mountains, and the colorful leaves of Fall appear. I'm not trying to rush the Summer, but I do so love my beloved Fall. The sights, the smells, the layers. Ohh, I love it! This weather just takes me back to it all over again. I just checked the forecast, and it looks like next week should be filled with some pretty high numbers, so I'm going to enjoy wrapping up in my blanket and listening to the falling rain outside my window :)
Friends, I must admit something. There is a down-side to Summer storms. I'm afraid of lightning. AHHH! There, I sad it! Now listen, I don't mind watching lightning from a distance, but I really don't like it knowing it's right over me. I especially don't like it when it seems to be striking all around the restaurant I'm supposed to be entering with my sis-in-law! Seriously, it's a scared moment you dunna wanna see. Thanks Sharon for just laughing at me and my childish fear.
