We are expecting a downpour any minute, although it does this regularly,
thunders, gets all cloudy and then nothing. We had a good storm Saturday
about 3 am but not enough to make up for our drought by any stretch. I
cleaned my storage room this morning and put away all my new gardening
stuff. I had two close friends move away (Marines, so time for them to move
on,) and they both loaded my up with all of their gardening stuff. It was
like Christmas! So my storage room is packed with fertilizers, weed killer,
lots of goodies. I even managed to squeeze my mower into the room so it can
quit sitting out in the weather.
