There is a very impressive lightning storm happening outside right now. It's 2:54 am. It has been going on for at least a half and hour. Unfortunately, the smoke alarm has decided go off as well, at very irregular intervals. I think I might have been able to almost sleep through the storm, but the piercing sound of the alarm has forced me into full consciousness. The rain has just begun as well. I don't think hubby-Eric and I are going to mow the triffid yard tomorrow, er, today.
