Here There and Everywhere

Drama Drama Drama

Last night, around one, I could see the flash of lightning reflected through the curtains, and hear the loud thundering boom, and I couldn’t resist getting up to see all that was going on. Wow! Earth in all her glory, a truly magnificent thunderstorm, with sound and light and magnificent bursts of rain – drama drama drama.

This morning, we have a wonderful sky, full of light and shadows, a day that can go either way – or both ways!


The day is dramatically cooler from yesterday, and the rest of the week is also supposed to be cooler, quite a change from earlier forecasts.


You can see all the way to the horizon today. The air is clean and breathable. My newly washed windows are spotted – there was a lot of dust brought down by this storm, thanks be to God. I can breathe!

  1. Drama indeed!!!

    My husband was telling me to put down the book i was reading and turn off the light so he can sleep, and i ignored him then BAM

    Lightinig, Thunder, Some loud crashing noise… and the Electricity went out!!!!

  6. I was sound asleep. Missed all the ‘drama’. Woke up in the morning, to find the roads ‘washed’. The drive to work was a pleasant one n cud roll down the windows, to enjoy the cool breeze.

  8. Driving into Kuwait City this morning, the air as you said was clean and all the buildings were washed. The skyline looked beautiful and the silver background gave it a dramatic feel.

    My camera was at home 😦

  9. LOL, Danderma, if it were MY husband, he would have looked at me and said pointedly “See what happens when you don’t listen to your husband?? God punishes you!” LLOOLL!

    N – It is a wonderful morning, isn’t it? The air is SO clean!

    LLOOLL, Noura! Earplugs! You missed a great storm.

    Oh Ansam, what luxury, a view of the sky at work. Are you high up? Can you see forever today?

    OOOhhh, Laialy, I hope it didn’t wake the children!

    Jonyboy – Oh, isn’t it wonderful, no air conditioning, the cool air and the clean highways?

    MiYaFuSHi – Now THAT would be really nice! Say it again, and wave your magic wand!

    OHhhh, Bu Yousef! You need another camera, an easy small one you can have with you all the time!
