Brewing up a Storm

This morning as I stepped out of my garage a little past 4:30, the three-quarter moon was shining overhead with plenty of stars scattered around. I walked up to the track breathing in the fresh morning air. Shortly after stretching and starting my first lap, a wind began blowing. By my fifth lap, the wind was nearly pushing me backwards; the clouds had billowed up over the mountains on three sides of me while the wind brought in another batch from the west. During the next couple of laps, I realized the temperature had dropped at least 10 degrees. Then lightening flashed brilliantly along the southern horizon. I cut my run a little short and started for home as the wind began driving raindrops diagonally into my face and thunder rolled across the valley. As I stepped into my garage, the clouds burst open and it just poured! After flipping off the sprinklers, I stood in the doorway and marveled at what I had just was magical!

Think of all you would miss if you didn't run in the morning!!! Since you get up at 4:30 in the morning, I'll stop whining about having to get up at 5:30 for seminary! :)

Oh, and guess what? We have a missionary in our ward from Hinckley, Utah!!!!! At dinner, when I asked him where he was from, he started the whole . . . . well . . . I'm from Hinckley, Utah, but the closest town is Delta! When I told him I was from Abraham he about swallowed his cud!

They moved to Hinckley in the late 90's . . . . Kunzler???? Do you know??? His father works at Zion's Bank . . . . .

I love a good thunder and lightening storm...but not so much at 4:30 in the morning! Sheesh woman!! I thought I was an early riser getting up at 5:45.

From the time I was about eight or nine years old, I got up at 4:30 to do chores. Now it is ingrained; whether I need to be up or not, I wake up at 4:30. I can usually go back to sleep after awhile, but I tend to regret it when I sleep past that time. Don't you love mornings!?
