The storm overnight was massive. T. Lightening flashed and at the same instance the thunder shook the house, and went on rumbling for minutes without stop. Car alarms went off from the vibrations. Rain began lashing the windows, the metallic tink-tink-tink of the rain drops hitting the storm windows caused her to get out of bed and shut windows throughout the house, and wipe down surfaces that were soaked by the time she got there. The cats stopped fussing at each other long enough to all gather on the bed, seeking reassurance that it wasn’t the end of the world.
