Re: weather

Kitty, you got the weather we were predicted to have - and we
need rain so badly.  The radio forecaster had said there would be
"wild" weather.  In fact the day was overcast, very humid, and 
about 80 degrees.  The sun came through for a couple of hours
in the afternoon. Then about sunset the skies grew very dark and
there was another 'Rip Van Winkle' thunder storm with much
rumbling and flashes of lightning.  Rain may have fallen for about
two minutes - barely enough to dampen the stepping stones.  Then
just before dark I looked out ahd there was a splendid rainbow - the
first I have seen in several years.  So much for the wild weather.  We
still need rain terribly.

We had very rough weather last night.  A lot of rain and 3 tornadoes in the 
area.  I got home a bit past midnight and all 3 streets that access my house 
were flooded with standing water.  The winds ripped all the petals off my 
poppies and most of the florets from my Meyer Lilac - looked like a mini 
snow storm had hit below it - a fragrant snowstorm though.  And of course 
the darn gutters were clogged with the stupid Maple seeds - bumper crop this 
year - so the water just tumbled over the gutters.  I'll have to go up there 
and clean them out again tomorrow.
