RE: weather


Tricia, it looks like we're going to get just that...at least for today and,
if we're lucky, tomorrow, too.  Rain again for Sunday.  The break will do my
heart good.  It would be wonderful if we could share to even out the
excesses of flood and drought, heat and cold.  Think we can find an
"American Inventor" to work on that?  LOL!!!

Blessings,
Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5)

I keep watching your weather on TV and can't imagine.
I wish for you a good sunny day!
