I got a bit worried when I heard thunder.
I was still at my desk in the office when the storm first hit.
In my local region, thunder is an indication of tons of rain, lightning and dangerously high winds on the way. I don’t like driving through heavy rain and big storms. It’s terribly stressful. I can’t see where I am going, and I start to sweat. I can be unsafe to drive. I stress over getting in an accident. I can’t afford to smash my car. Even though I drive slowly and carefully, the people on the road don’t always do the same. It rained all day. It was stormy and traffic was dreadful on my way home from work. Cars were moving at around 20 miles per hour. I had trouble locating my exit. After over an hour in bumper to bumper traffic, I eventually arrived home. By then, I had a headache due to the stress. I then realized I still needed to make something for dinner. I was unwilling to head back out in the bad weather again. Because my shelves and refrigerator were just about empty, I checked into local food delivery. I searched online and found all sorts of options. I could choose from Thai, Mexican, Italian and all kinds of food. Since I was in the mood for ravioli, I decided to call an Italian place. Their ad promised delivery within the hour. I called and placed my order. They assured me that the driver would show up with my meal within 30 minutes. Due to the weather, it was closer to an hour before my meal arrived. I was not surprised. I was simply happy to have a tasty meal delivered right to my doorstep.
