Re: Thunder

We got some much needed rain here a few days ago only to discover that
in the tremendously dry heat we've been having, part of our roof had
buckled and now we have a leak. Great, just great. Guess I know where my
money will be going this month...not that I have it, mind you...have car
registration fees to pay this month, school shopping to do, new braces
for Meg to pay for...this puts the final kaput to vacation...sometimes
when it rains, it really does pour! :-(

Hills, IA  zone 5

Work for the Lord:  the pay isn't much but the retirement is out of this world!

Auralie, whenever I've been very dry here for awhile and rain is on
the<br>way, I attempt to water my beds a bit before it arrives, so the
rain<br>will have a better chance of some of it soaking in rather than
running<br>off. Much of the hard rain you described may run off anyway,
but most<br>would surely run off if it hits dry, hard soil. Now that
yours is<br>moistened, I hope you get some more. I think we have had
plenty here for<br>awhile. Our temps dropped dramatically too after the
storms arrived but<br>are starting to climb a little. Last night I
hand-trimmed all my front<br>beds and mowed and barely broke a sweat at
all. It was wonderful!<br><br><br>Kitty<br><br>-- Aplfgcnys@aol.com

small favors -

every bit of rain helps but this was so hard<br>and lasted so short a
time that it didn't help much. When I<br>tried to dig in the garden this
morning, the soil was not even<br>moist more than two inches down. Hope
yours amounts to<br>more than ours did.<br>Auralie<br><br>In a message
