It's monsoon season here in Arizona. We look forward to the rain to cool down our sweltering summer heat. Sometimes the monsoon brings in some amazing storms with impressive lightning shows. On these nights, we sometimes get company in our bed. Our boys are really scared of the thunder.
Sunday night (2 weeks ago) we had just finished dinner at Karissa's house and we glanced out the window and saw a huge dust storm heading into Mesa. We gathered the boys up and rushed home just as the rain started to fall.
I knew the storm was going to be big and scary for our boys so I convinced Jeremiah that we should have a sleep over in the living room.
Just as we got the hide-a-bed out the power went out.
The next morning they got their flashlights out again and had fun pretending that the power was out. lol.
We found out the next day that a micro-burst storm had knocked down the power lines nearby and we were lucky to only lose power for a couple of hours. There were a lot of other people that didn't have power until the next morning.
