Yesterday´s thunders.

Yesterday there were thunders and lightning all day while the rain poured over the city. As I live very close to the mountains, the whole dance seemed to be over my head. Fortunatly my husband taught me to count the space between a lightning and its thunder. If I could count to 10, the tempest was far away and I was safe. Still. even if the tempest seemed to be over the mountains, I did not like it. However, the rain was a blessing. There has not been any rain at all and farmers need it. Last night I went to bed very late and today I woke up VERY late and just because one of my close friends called and asked me if I was going to be here after lunch so that she could come for a visit. I invited her to tea (coffee really). I hope I have time for a nap. I´m half asleep still and it is almost midday. Still, last night it was fun. As I could not sleep, I saw two episodes of Mis Fisher´s murder stories What do you do when you cannot sleep for some reason?

I get on the computer and myLot or else watch Netflix. I usually wind up going back to sleep, but sometimes not. Did the lightning keep you up then Marguicha?

I usually read if I cannot sleep. So glad you get to spend some time with your friend today!

I have no problem with thunderstorms as long as I am indoors and dry. Of course it is horrendous being out side and caught in such torrential storms.

I was dry and comfy. But there was too much noise to go to sleep.

@marguicha I would be able to ignore it to a fair degree.

We were supposed to have rain here but only had some the night before last. Who knows if we will have any today or not. Mis Fisher's murder stories I like those also.

Here this is the first rain of the year. I know many people welcomed it.

I just lay in bed, tossing and turning.

It depends. Sometimes I will read or watch television. Other times I will play with one of my electronics. Then there are times when I will practice relaxation techniques to try to help myself fall asleep.

I loved to watch Miss Fisher's murder stories. Today it has been sunny, but the weatherman says we will have a thunderstorm tomorrow.
