South View

thunderstorm
   blew up
   the lake
      tonight,
frightened
the neighbor's
   little dog

   raindrops
   as big as
      dollars
fell thick
   and oh
so fast

   bright flash 
of lightning
   and the dog
      jumped so
      i almost
had to laugh,
   because i
   understood

        Umbrella? Serious weather would destroy that. The storm we just had would destroy an umbrella an about one second.

        If it looks like bad weather, I take and wear a Gore-tex jacket.

        Oh dear! Actually I’ve often studied adverts for those umbrellas that are supposed not to blow inside out but knowing the vandalism of the rapacious winds here I think they would be shredded in seconds! Stick with the Gore-tex! 😊
