Thunderstorms are one of the things from Cleveland that I miss. They are a sign of summer in Ohio and it’s odd to go longer than a week or two without hearing the rumble of thunder during the summer months.

In the same way it’s common in Cleveland, it’s equally rare in Seattle.

Tonight, however, we’re having a good thunderstorm here.

The lights and sounds are, in a strange way, comforting.

Our kitties, on the other hand, disagree.
