I live in the attic and the windows are skylights, and so if they are open it rains in, and also if it rains, it sounds like stones on a corrugated iron roof.
I counted the lightning and there was like 1 second before the thunder, it was like right over my house! First time I have ever been freaked in a thunderstorm and there was so much hail. Our animals got freaked.
After getting woken up by the sound and closing the windows, I fell asleep and apparently there was more during the night and more to come! It's still really summery and hot.
My father and I are still not speaking lol. Sometimes people are wrong about stuff ;)
