It wasn't expected.
It was shocking, really, to be woken from a deep sleep by the rolling, intermittent thunder.
Lightning flashed across the sky...turning the darkness to momentary light.
Rousing me halfway from my sleep, I would become more alert each time the thunder clapped overhead.
In that state of illogicality, my biggest concern was that my visiting teachers would not be able to make it down my road today due to the muddy, slippery conditions.
It's funny now that I am fully awake (not rested...but awake) to think about what I worried about during the storm.
What worries you when you are woken unexpectedly in the middle of the night?
