electrical storm

We had our first summer storm of the season last night. For a couple of hours the sky was streaked with lightning. We sat out on the deck in the dark and watched the storm advancing. Watched is just part of it. We smelled and felt it too - from stifling stillness to the air moving like folds of fabric, alternating warm and cool, then the tang of ozone, and the rain, also cool and warm at the edge of the storm. We came inside and went to bed before it really came on full force. Must have been spectacular about midnight.

question: what's your favourite weather to watch?
