stormy night

At around 3 in the morning last night, Travis and I both (and Ellie) woke up to the most incredible thunder and lightning storm that we have experienced in a long while.  Lots of lightning, huge cracks of thunder, quite a bit of rain and hail.  The whole storm thing would have been a bit more awe inspiring if it wasn't right in the middle of a good night's rest.  Mind you, I LOVE a good storm.  If it had been during the day, I would have had the blinds pulled up and been "oohing" and "ahhing" at every brilliant flash of lightning and thunderous crack. 

Ellie was in bed with us and shook with every boom.  Poor thing.  The storm, and Ellie, kept me up for about 2 hours.  The power went out at one point, and stayed out for several hours.  It came back on just as Travis' alarm went off to signal him to start his day.  Needless to say, I went back to bed after Travis left for work.  It was a long night.  A wonderfully stormy, tiring night. 

While I couldn't sleep, I was able to catch a few moments of the storm on video, although they hardly do it justice.  But they'll give you an idea of what we couldn't sleep through.
