Sunday Trees – The Neighborhood

A couple of days late, but here’s my entry for the Sunday Trees challenge. 🙂

***

These are the trees I see every day right around our house.

The first one is our front yard tree in the beginning of fall. The leaves have already started to turn yellow and fall to the ground. You can also see part of our sidewalk, and a weathered wood bench. One of our neighbors built the bench for us.

The next photos I took yesterday afternoon during a rain and hail storm. Lots of thunder, and rain, and the hail  was very loud, but not very big…about pea to marble sized.

There is the tree directly next door. You can see the mailbox in this one.

Then the big tree directly across the street from us. You can see part of their house.

Last tree is across from us, too.

Lots of green leaves, and we have had plenty of rain this year.

Bonked on the Head

Bonked on the Head

Picture of dark skies, and a bright streak of lightning I took a few years ago.

So, I was bonked on the head last night.

Here’s what happened…

The ferocious thunderstorm, with crashing lightning and thunder, buckets of rain, and hail pinging off the windows woke me up around midnight. As usual I’d fallen asleep in the recliner chair while I was reading, but after the loud noise woke me up, decided I’d better go on to bed. First a visit to the bathroom.

Just as I went in there, I was bonked on the head by something falling from the ceiling! Still half asleep, I fumbled around trying to find what it was. I looked down at the floor and saw the overhead, plastic light fixture cover was the culprit. Good thing it was only plastic, as the other light we have over the sink, has a glass cover.

Anyway, I set the cover off to the side. But, then that light went out. At least I had the sink light on, too. At first I thought maybe the lightning or the rumbling thunder that was shaking the house had made it all happen. Who knows…could have been.

I finally made it back to bed, and Cricket and I watched the storm some more out the west windows…flash boom ping –  flash boom ping! The storm was over by the morning.
