Sudden storm

The day had been bright and clear, hardly a cloud in the sky.

So the suddenness of the night’s thunderstorm takes me by surprise.

One moment I am drifting towards sleep, and the next the sound of the rain drowns out even the white noise doodad.

Checking the forecast, I see that it’s only supposed to last this hour.

So I guess it’s best to just batten down the hatches and hang on for this hour.

And try to get some sleep. Wind and rain permitting.
