I’m looking forward to hurricane Earl cooling things down this weekend. Not just because it has been deathly hot this week, but because I honestly really enjoy massive thunderstorms. When I was little I would run around in my skivvies in the back yard during torrential downpours getting all good and wet. Seeing as I’m now an adult (if that’s what you would call me) and that I live in the city where running around in my skivvies in the rain would most likely be frowned upon, I’m content with being snug as a bug inside for the duration of the storm. So when Earl comes knocking, make yourself a cuppa, watch some classic movies (my stormy weather picks are Barefoot in the Park and The Sound of Music) and get into something cozy.
