This past Wednesday, one of my biggest fears 'rained' down on me...
I have three HUGE fears:
All are equal... none are more equal than the others...
That said, Wednesday, I woke up to the sound dripping and in my sleep fog couldn't tell if it was inside or outside... inside didn't make any sense, but hey, I was still mostly asleep. I got up, turned on the morning news so I could see what the weather was going to be, got dressed, grabbed an umbrella and headed for work. Around 9 or so, I started seeing little flashes of lightening, which made me jump, not much, but some... then a friend called me and asked if I knew of any fires on my side of the mountian. When I went outside, I saw the smoke from a fire that was about a couple of miles up the hill from the San Manuel Reservation. Yep, caused by a lightenign strike.
Wednesday afternoon/early evening I had caught the bus headed home, and there were 'bigger' forks of lightening striking... which I could sort of ignore, on the bus... but when I got off of the bus, and was waiting for the connecting one to take me home, there were more and more and... more... it seemed as if they were within a perimiter of 3 to 10 miles... and unfortunately I was outside, under a bus shelter. The scared little girl part of me was fighting very hard to come out...
another day I will wax eloquent about my fear of fire, and of spiders...
