At 4:14 this morning, I was startled awake by a giant cap of thunder.
At first, I did not know what it was. My first thought was that it was a crash and Miles was hurt. I sat up in a panic and realized I must be wrong.
It must be an explosion, I thought. Someone blew something up out back. Then I heard the deluge of water come down on the roof. It was a giant storm with lots of water. We needed the rain and I was grateful for it. I lay in bed and thought about Miles. I thought about what I thought and wondered why my mind jumped so quickly to an impossibility.
