The weather is unsettling

This is not the usual Utah September.  This afternoon we had continuous rolling thunder.  I've never heard anything like it before.  "What is that?" I asked Tom, and then stood out on the porch to hear it more clearly.  An irritating wind was up, gusting debris.  I wanted to say, "Shut up!"  As if I controlled the universe. As if.

We had rain yesterday afternoon and then the sun came out.  I walked up and down the sidewalk in my bare feet peering into neighbors' yards and swooning at the scent of rain.

But today it's all atmospheric trauma.
