Thunder has always been one of my favourite sounds. I love storms. I love watching the lightning. It’s a happy thing for me to watch a storm. I don’t live in a place where we get the really bad ones, so when we get a storm that actually darkens the sky and causes the ground to shake from the thunder, I get excited. Some of the best storms I’ve ever seen first hand have been in the prairies – although mostly in Ontario during the hot summer months. I experienced some amazing storms last summer in the north, though, while staying in Tombstone National Park’s campground several hundred kilometers north of Whitehorse, Yukon. Definitely made the trip up worth it, even though it prevented us from doing any real hiking that entire trip.
That’s enough rambling, I think. This one came about due to a really loud clap of thunder I heard a few days ago that scared my dog so badly he seemed to think the world was ending. I had to put it in words somehow in that moment.
PS, I’m currently running a campaign to help raise money to publish the first book of this series! Please take a look at the campaign page here ==> Between Love and Death <== and help out if you can, even if it’s just sharing the link on your own space. Thanks!
