So my person and I decided to go for a walk.
Because of the rain everything smelled fresh and good, and the rain and clouds had cooled the air.
Rather than sweltering in the heat like we’ve been doing the last few days, it felt refreshing out in the cooler temperature.
This was turning into one of the best walks I’ve been on in a long time.
But then it happened.
First it was just a few drops of rain.
I can handle that.
But then I saw it.
A big flash of lightning.
And you know what comes after that.
I hate thunder. I’m deathly afraid of it.
Fortunately we were right at the beginning of a trail heading into the wash.
And it was the opposite direction of that thunder.
It’s a cool trail too, because you have to climb over big rocks when you get into the wash there.
But my person didn’t get it. She said we weren’t going that way.
But that thunder kept getting worse. And it came from the very direction we were headed.
My person says we have to go through this stuff to get home.
But I’m sure we can still get home if we head in another direction.
