Begging for Light(ning)

July 13, 2014

After a week of ever-increasing temperatures, the skies turned this morning, growing gray and ominous as a rare summer storm overtook the day. I found myself marveling at the power of Mother Nature as my house shook with each clap of thunder that rumbled across the surrounding hillside.

While my animals aren’t bothered by loud noises (thankfully), something about the weather drove the cats to beg … and plead … and demand … that I open the blinds, giving them the chance to watch the lightning dance across the sky and marvel at the source of the noise.

Every once in a while, when the thunder was the loudest, she would look at me almost as if she was saying, “How are you doing that?”

Of course, wherever Zoey is, Colby isn’t far behind.

The two babies of the pack

Both Colby and Zoey enjoyed nature’s show for the better part of the afternoon as the other animals lounged around the house. Just watching their enjoyment easily made this one of the best Sundays I have had in a while.
