Summer Lightning Storms

 (Photo from phatman via Flickr)

Yesterday was hot and humid, one of the first days this year that really felt like summer.  We fell asleep with all the windows wide open but at 3:00am, I woke up to pouring rain, thunder and lightning.  The rain was beautiful, sheets of water flying by the windows with light flickering behind it.  It took me a while to fall back to sleep but the rain was comforting.  Living right near the beach, I'm tempted to jump in my car one night and drive towards the water to see the lightning bolts above the ocean.  Does anyone else like storms in the summer?
