The Time We Were Struck By Lightning

I love how I live in such a small random town, yet so many bloggers pass through!! Jenny, from Modern Modest Beauty, is a flight attendant and happened to be spending the night in my city. So she emailed me asking if I was free, which, like always, I was!

So we decided to make an adventure out of her short stay and head an hour north, to the mountains. Perhaps it wasn't the best decision considering we had to brave the thunderstorm... oh ya, and we were struck by lightning...

Well, my car was.

Lucky for us, nothing happened. It was loud, it was scary, it happened really quickly. After it happened, we slowly turned our heads towards each other to make sure that really happened. Yes, it did.

After we made it safely to Pine Valley, we ate at a lovely rustic restaurant called the "Brandin Iron", then ice cream in the parlor next door.

By the time we left, the rain had stopped and a beautiful double rainbow had formed. We spent the hour drive home discussing blogging and life. It was such a fun night!

So, if you ever happen to be passing through- Let. Me. Know!

Hima said...

Oh my gosh, that's is really scary. Actually, I heard somewhere recently that men are six times more likely to get struck by lightning than women, so be glad you're a girl, I guess. ;)
Glad you had fun!

Oh my goodness! I am still scared by thunder. I never know if it's okay to go outside in it.

Emma Frances said...

That is CRAZY! It sounds like the night was still a success though! :] And I NEED to come visit you! How much longer are you going to be in St. George? And are you headed home afterwords? Because there is still a big chance that Race and I might move to Idaho which would be closer to wherever you are in Utah...I think! Haha.

No way! SCARY!
And I miss you, Gentri! Let's play when you get back... seriously!! You're not going to be here very much longer so I need to get in as much play time as we can, ha ha.

And I suck big time. I'm still planning on coming into the school! I was sick last week and didn't want to cough and sneeze all over you... yeah. Super gross.

This sounds so fun! I will have to check out her blog too because I have been considering trying to become a flight attendant! I was out hiking in the mountains and almost got struck by lightning yesterday too! It looked like it hit the top of the hill in front of us! The hike was very shortlived to say the least, scary!
Hope you are having a beautiful Monday!
