I have never experienced a lightning storm like the one we had last night. Everything was quiet and then all of a sudden it looked like a light was flickering outside. I looked out one window, then another and then another. The “light” looked the same no matter where in the house I was.
It was eerie and quiet. No thunder could be heard. Only the flickering lightning in the sky could be seen.
After 45 minutes or so, I could hear rolling thunder far away. The winds stopped blowing and the trees remained still. A sudden burst of rain fell and then — nothing.
Everything stopped as quickly as it had started.
Moving to a different part of the U.S. has given me many new experiences.
