Thunder Alley

There have been the craziest thunderstorms around here lately.  There was a major one the other night.  The God of Thunder must have been sitting on top of my building because it was just booming.  Think windows shaking and car alarms ringing in the street below.  As for the lightning, I liken it to a red carpet event, with millions of flashes going off.  The sky was blazing, like someone had the sky’s light switch and was moving it up and down very quickly.  CNN reported that there were approximately 20,000 bolts of lightning that night.  It was relentless and right outside my window.

On a more relaxing note, I just got back from a foot massage.  It was 80 minutes long and included a back and neck massage, with hot towels. Did I mention it cost about $10 US?  I have had more massages here in China in 5 weeks than I have had in my entire life.  TSC.

Uh oh… just heard some serious thunder and saw giant sparkles in the sky.  Time to batten down the hatches!

    Your reports are very interesting. It’s an amazing world out there. Can you imagine what Marco Polo thought when he was there?
    Many Blessings!
