I woke up at about 345 to my aunts dog begging to go outside, when she came back she said she had heard thunder off in the distance and thought we were about to get a thunder storm. About 20 minutes later we got hit by a massive thunder storm. The storms lasted the rest of the early morning finally stopping at about 5am. I sat up that entire time trying to record the lightning as it flashed up lake, a couple times I could see the bolt hit the water uplake it was amazing. After the stroms I went back to bed only to wake up about 3 hours later when My uncle finally arrived. I got up and out of bed and started making my chili, my mom and 2 aunts were having breakfast and getting things ready for the BBQ later that day.
My uncle started working on fixing the water pump so we did not have to keep carrying buckets of water from the lake to the cabin for evrything. At about 3pm is when we started grilling. We had Chicken Wings, Steak Tips, Pasta Salad, Fruit Salad, Chili, Chips, Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, Hot sauages, and Brats. It took more time to cook the food than it did to eat it. We had to head back in because more thunderstorms had started moving in down lake. Unfortunatley they had passed us by. It just rained for the rest of the night, but it did not stop the town from setting off the fireworks, our the people across the lake from setting off thiers. I elected to stay inside due to mosquitos and rain. My little cousin and I worked on a murder mystery puzzle instead till about 11 before finally going to sleep. I had to get up early in the am because my mom wanted to get home early.
