thunder and lightning and rain

More peculiar weather today — thunder and lightning and even a little bit of rain! I know that it’s normal for other parts of the country to have thunderstorms at this time of year, but it’s not normal here! Rain is rare even in winter, and we almost never get thunder and lighting.

Today I went searching for familiar audiobooks in German. I managed to get my hands on “Harry Potter und der Stein der Weisen”, which is so much fun! When I read along with the German text, I can understand almost everything, which fills me with confidence.

Oh, and I was complaining to Elli about the lack of good EN<>DE dictionaries online and she told me about http://dict.cc, which has made all of my dreams come true. It even remembers which words you’ve looked up recently, and you can add words to a vocabulary list and then it will train you, flash-card style! Super!
