Got some last night. More thunder than I have heard in many, many years. Kept me awake for a couple of hours.

As John Prine wrote in 'Angel From Montgomery':

"If dreams were lightning, and thunder were desire
This old house would have bunt down a long time ago".
Many expats trying to cope with intermittent electricity and water supply and other living frustrations in the DR can relate to John’s lyrics in “You don’t have to call me darling, darling”.

“It was all that I could do to keep from crying,
Sometimes it seemed so useless to remain“.

Lol!

One of my dogs freaks over thunder !
But I love the rain, not muddy paw prints.

I have one of those
She’s 14 yrs old
Ran away in one a few weeks ago, we gave her up for dead

10 days later she came back exhausted
Someone had her b/c she had lost no weight

My daughter lost a dog one year on July 4th, never found him. Our DR born rottie doesn’t even raise her head no matter how loud. She’s oblivious.

Susan Tedeschi’s version was the best.

I’m partial to Bonnie Raitt‘s cover. Her voice gives the lyrics a special touch. The torrential rainfall is good but it runs off quickly. Every bit helps but what’s needed is normal rainfall over extended periods to fully recharge the aquifers and less extended drought periods. That would benefit DR agriculture the most.
