A Scared Dog and a Sleeping Child

July 31, 2010

I was sitting in the living room watching the debut of Thierry Henry for Red Bull New York when I saw lighting in the distance.  I grabbed my phone and opened the Weather Channel app.  A large line of thunderstorms was making its way through Georgia towards Monticello .  The little exclamation point was also blinking away to indicate that a severe weather warning was in affect.

The rain started to pelt the windows.  The periodic rain drops turned to a steady patter that was accompanied by lightening.  I looked out the window and saw Mason’s little stroller filling with water as a strike hit somewhere south of Winn-Dixie.

Julia and I went into the bedroom. Julia nodded off to sleep while the worst of the store passed overhead and I slid her into her crib snoring. Becks was in bed while Jackson was under it. After some coaxing he got the courage to hop up on the bed and bury under the covers.  He eventually put his head on my arm, curled up next to me and we both fell asleep as the rain and lightening whirled away outside.
