Don’t know if it’s due to global warming, or what, but in the last 2 weeks we’ve had a lot – a LOT – of thunderstorms. Maybe six or seven? By contrast, up until last week, we only had one…count ’em, ONE…thunderstorm, during the entire previous 10.5 years of our residence here. Don’t get me wrong – I’m happy about it; thunderstorms are one of the things I miss most about Virginia – but it just seems very odd.
