In the Summertime


This is a prompt from the Daily Post.  —-  If it’s autumn or winter where you live, what are you most looking forward to doing next summer? If it’s spring or summer where you are, what has been the highlight of the season so far for you?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Summer is not my favorite season. I prefer spring time, but since it is now summer I have to think summertime.

I don’t think this is the type of highlight I would like to celebrate, but we are having terribly severe thunder storms. These include tornadoes, which aren’t native to my state, but have become more increasingly high in numbers the last few years. We are occasionally hit head-on by hurricanes which also cause tremendous damage. Last week’s storm was high winds and it tore through our area and ripped huge trees out of the ground. They landed on houses and electrical wires, with residents around us with no electric for over 5 days. Pictures of tornadoes haunted the internet supposed to be from our area, but who knows with the internet. Streets were blocked by fallen trees and traffic lights were out. It was a war zone around here.

Tonight was supposed to be another storm just like it, but I think it was mainly rain and noise. The expected winds of 60 MPH didn’t arrive unless they are predicting another storm for later tonight. Hail was predicted too.

So that has been the highlight of the summer so far. Fun huh?
