    i went out walking barefoot in the thunderstorm. the soles of my feet are starting to get thick from walking almost everywhere barefoot on a daily basis. i squished through soft mud and splashed across cool puddles. i don't remember how to tell how far away a storm is by counting the seconds between flash and thunder, but i knew it was far enough away i could just take my time walking in the rain. i saw some beautiful forked lightning over to the northwest. it's still raining, but the storm's over.

    we've been getting a lot of storms. the herbalist at my co-op says things have been growing like crazy, between the rain and the heat, and that's why i've found so many 4-leaf clovers. i picked up my CSA share this afternoon, and, although there are always plenty of greens this time of year, sure enough, the greens and the herbs were plentiful and lush. i give myself one week to become utterly sick of salads.

    i worry about the huge number of storms we've been getting, though. i mean, i love thunderstorms. it just seems odd to be getting so many.

    Tell me about it, I think this place is going to become a temperate rainforest soon! i love rain and storms as much as anyone, but this is ridiculous. Too much, it can be depressing with no sun for days on end.[​IMG]

    I would probably go barefoot too, but in addition to the rain, it's cold here[​IMG]

    yes, it's a bit cool here, which is unusual. Thankfully I've got hairy feet to protect me from the cool dampness, but in warmer weather I shave it off and I'm looking forward to that. There are benefits to being a hairy beast!

    The frequency of thunderstorms this early in the season is also concerning me. The weather is becoming more and more unpredictable with each passing year it seems. You'd probably be even more paranoid than me if you read The Coming Global Superstorm by Art Bell and Whitley Strieber. They predict there will be a period of extreme and severe weather across a large portion of the globe, followed by a gradual shift of the earth's poles, which would ultimately result in another ice age, killing off all life on earth. It may sound a bit far-fetched to some people, but it really isn't as far-fetched as it seems. And it's not a matter of IF it will happen, but rather WHEN it will happen. Look what is going on at the poles as we speak, there are massive ice shelfs literally breaking off and melting into the ocean.

    There is a movie coming out this summer which is based on this book, but I forgot the title of it.

    yeah, the movie's called the day after tomorrow. and it starts playing may 28. i live in an area that usually gets tons of rain, and we've got pre-drought conditions happening right now. either it's just a bad year (ya, right :rolleyes: ) or we're in for some freaky global warming extreme weather.
