a lightening night…

after a very humid evening i go to bed shortly before midnight, the lingering heat, the humidity make it difficult to find sleep (even though i do search for it thoroughly)…when i finally find sleep, it’s just of short duration: a tremendous thunderstorm wakes me up…heavy rain (forcing me out of bed to close the balcony doors and windows, rats) is accompanied by almost constant ligthening and thunder, it seems…the thunderstorm apparently likes it in our area and stays for quite a bit…after what appears like hours it finally becomes bored and trolls off…it’s little brother, though, drops by a little later! all in all an interesting night, but not very rich in sleep…

p.s.: the tagesanzeiger (sorry, no link possible, as they think you’d like to pay to read their archived articles) reports on friday that about 500-550 lightenings were counted during the night from wednesday to thursday…
