I had a dream about a thunderstorm last night and it occurred to me today that I don’t think I’ve heard thunder (or seen lightning) since we moved to Yakima. (Maybe one rumble late at night last summer.) It just doesn’t happen. Last summer it was sunny just about every day and when it did rain it would be a twenty minute mini cloudburst. This spring whenever I see rain in the forecast I know that means it will get cloudy for a few hours and then it might sprinkle briefly. No, I’m not complaining about the abundance of sun, it’s just that I wouldn’t mind seeing some angry weather every once in a while.
