I remember the weather in Texas, in Crystal City, it was terrible, wow. That's the first time I heard thunder in my life, and that thunder was scary, oh god, that was... we were three of us in a room and we, three kids, you know, the youngest of us, and we were just crying because the parents and the sister and brother were out somewhere, I don't know, but we were just scared by the lightning and the thunder. It was the first time I ever heard it in my life, you know, that was very scary, I remember that.
