thunder rumbles…..

…..from across Harris Creek early this morning. Still dark, it gets louder and closer, and Zip starts a quiet whimper. I flip some bed covers over her head and turn over. She settles under.

Thunder on spongy Delmarva is different from the sharp, piercing cracks of the midwest. Here, it soaks through the squishy, springy pulp of the land, absorbed by Delmarva herself. Stretching from above, down through and below, it bellows and shakes, and I fall back to sleep.

Sleeping through morning thunder.

Could you call it “slunder”?

Whatever you call it, it’s delicious.

  1. I LOVE this post. Delilah, my female Chessie, is petrified of storms and always tries to sleep on me. Love the imagery of the different thunder. It was wonderful meeting and cooking with you this weekend!
