We just got back from our little family getaway to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and one of the highlights of our trip was going to see the Texas Rangers play the Minnesota Twins at the Ballpark in Arlington. This was the first Major League Baseball game my son and I had ever attended (my husband is a HUGE Ranger’s fan), so I was anxious to see a “real game”.
The sky started clouding over after the game started, which was a welcomed site because it was HOT. My makeup was melting down my face, my hair was dripping wet, and it looked as if no relief was in site. We heard a rumble of thunder, but it wasn’t anything terrible sounding. I had brought my umbrella just in case.
And then this happened:
Thankfully, nobody was injured. However, I have never been so scared silly in all of my life. Apparently, lightning hit somewhere nearby the stadium (that flash of light you see on the screen), and the thunder was the loudest sound I have ever heard in my entire life, proving that everything really IS bigger in Texas.
