bad storms around here.  Same is predicted for today.  At 5:16 in the AM... it

We had rain all early
morning then on and off all day and raining again now. 
During a clear period
i dug ourt a bed of tawny daylilies to give to a 
coworker.  Oh wow - was it
ever humid! Sweatcity! Started raining again, so 
I took a drive and delivered
them.  The rain was welcome.  Hope the plants 
can store up some of the water
as it will be in 90s all week.
30% chance of rain over the next several days.
