A SUPER CELL STORM...by b. Malin

Mother Nature
Mother Nature


It was late Friday night, Lover Man and I are watching a Video, when the lights go out...Huh? we both look at each other. "Hey, I say, I think we left the porch windows open and it sounds like it's starting to rain". We both jump up from the couch and race to the porch. Ok, honestly, "I" race to the back porch. My Man WALKS, Lover Man is NOT capable of Running Fast...And that's ok, it's just the way it is...And so this is where my story begins...

We are now both on the back porch closing all ten windows, as the wind is beginning to get louder, and then we start to hear an erie whistling sound. I'm about to close the back door, when I notice the "Jacuzzi's" hot tub lid, is upright. Lover Man notices it too and says, "You stay inside, I'll Bolt it down, there are safety bolts are all 4 sides". Ah, my Hero, my Superman, going out to meet the Challenge, I think to myself, as I open the door for him, as he goes down the 3 steps. OMG, I think, as I watch, it looks like he is FLYING. "Be careful" I yelled through the screen, as now there is lighting Flashing about as well.

He goes behind the Jacuzzi to do the job, and I start screaming, Hurry, HURRY. "I can't Hear You"! he Screams back... as the wind is picking up, this is No Normal Storm I think to myself. Finally he seems to FLY around to the front where he bolts down the other 2 sides and is now safely back inside. Amazingly, we have Power, so we turn on the Weather Channel, which is saying the winds have reached 80 miles per hour in some areas at the Jersey Shore...HELLO, that is US!

Well it's now 3 am, neither of us is sleepy, but still we lay down and kiss Goodnight, then, we Kiss Again, and Again...and before we know it, we are totally into it! It turns out to be a Wonderful Night of the most Satisfying Love Making...The Wind is Hollowing, the Sky is Lighting up with Thunder and Lightning...We seem "Super Charged" like the Storm. And in my mind I can hear that old song by the "Pointer Sisters" singing, "I Love a Man with a Slow Hand, an Easy Touch...One who doesn't come and go in a Rush"...Well you get the picture...And that Folks, is my Lover Man...May he never learn to Run Fast, or do ANYTHING Speedily. So smile Ladies, and always remember that Song, and teach it to your Man, Especially if he's a Fast Runner. After all, you NEVER know when the next "Super Cell Storm" is coming.

Welcome back to writing my friend; you have been missed! Hilarious as usual and a bit scary. I have never been in one of those storms and hopefully never will be....although a weird part of me thinks it would be rather exciting. :) Great hub!

This is yet another very entertaining hub, b. Malin! Storms like you describe are very exciting, as long as they don't create any damage. Your storm certainly sounds like it was a wonderful experience!

Hi Billy, yes, it was a bit Scary. But the sad part is the Mainland, is still without power and it's been 4 days! We on the Island, are so Lucky we really didn't loose ours.

It's Good to be back, but Summer Time is so Hectic... but I'm trying to keep in touch with Everyone ,and Read your Hubs as well. I'm so Glad you Enjoyed!

Hi Lyric, We still have Families on the Mainland 4 days LATER, and still without Power, really not fair, and it's Hot. We really were Lucky not to loose ours.

Hi Alicia, Thanks for Enjoying. Sadly, this Storm, caused a lot of problems on the Mainland, and 4 days later they are still without Power. For us on the Island, we were really Lucky, we kept our Power. Yes, it was quite an Experience!

Hi Sunshine, Yes, our Weatherman called it a "Super Cell Storm" and I thought I've got to Hub about this one. I think I kept it a PG13 rating... Well at least I tried...Love your Comments too!

What a hoot! Who cares about thunder or lightening when you have a slow hand. Since you didn't lose power you must have been listening to Conway Twitty. You go Girl. I must report, It looks like storms are in your area, so enjoy.. Cheers my friend..

Glad you survived the storm. My family in the midwest suffered loss of power due to the same system. It was scary as they heard the 80 mph winds tearing up homes and knocking down trees. It did come suddenly, and as you say, you never know when they will hit again.

Hi Ruby, Storm coming? You just Find yourself Something, or Someone to LOVE! The predicted Storm passed over, so we'll have to wait for the NEXT one!

b. Malin profile image

b. Malin 4 years ago Author

Hi Teacher, it was so Amazing that our Barrier Island had hardly any loss of Power, while the mainland, day 5, is STILL be repaired. I think they blamed it on too many trees near Power lines. But the 80 mile an hour winds, we did experience!

Hi Movie Master, just look up at the Sky and say a Prayer to the Rain Gods...But a little less than 80 mile an hour winds would be better! GOOD LUCK!

So glad you are both alright.

That said, I'm also glad you and Lover Man made full and wonderful use of the adrenaline rush brought on by the Super Cell Storm.

Nothing like a fearless hero, flashing light and ongoing threat of danger to heighten arousal. LOL

Loved this amorous romp. Voted up across the board.

Nature is impressing and there is something exciting with weather. I have never been in a storm like the one you describe but I like a good thunder and enjoy staying indoors during a storm. What a great way to spend the time during a storm! I really enjoyed reading this one and I am so glad to meet you here!
