Re: OMG - it's weather!

We just got a "frog-strangler" here. Why is it when there MAY be some clouds floating around the weather service will broadcast that horrid screeching noise on the weather channel and tell you a SEVERE thunderstorm warning is in effect for your area, yada yada, but when there actually IS a dangerous storm.....nothing. The weather channel had a cloud with a few rain drops coming out of it for "my area." The thunder was literally coming at the same time as the lightning and shaking the house, while I of course was on the floor consoling my pack as they all shook and panted. It went on for a good 1/2 hour with the thundering and pouring of rain. But, at least I won't have to water tomorrow. I have a nasty cold and all I want to do is go to bed.

We got (an unexpected) 2" of rain yesterday afternoon and evening. It's truly amazing how the trees and shrubs look now as compared to yesterday morning. Of course, it's like the third rain we've had this whole summer...

Look, up in the sky - too big for a bird, can't be a plane - no, they
are clouds! Clouds by golly and what is that bright light? Lightning!
And thunder! And - wait for it - RAIN! Okay so maybe it's only a tenth
of an inch but there was definitely water falling from the sky, I can
see puddles. Didn't rain on me of course, I think when you want it bad
enough it goes somewhere else. But we must have followed it all the way
into work.
It is still pretty warm though and yesterday was just seriously hot. I
got into the car after my lunchtime yoga class and I was really thirsty,
decided to have a drink from the bottle of water I'd left in the car. I
knew it would be pretty warm water but I actually scalded myself a
little. Wow. We took the horses to our team penning lesson at 7:00 and
we were all out there sweating like horses, and not much better at 11:00
when we got home. I don't know how you folks in humid climates can do
I am looking forward to 5 days at home starting tomorrow, although it is
supposed to be hot like this so I don't know how much gardening I'll get
done, but if I can't stand to be out there is still plenty to do inside.
My new range will show up Tuesday. Husband has the entire next week off
work and I'm steadily increasing the length of his honey-do list,
although it's more of a suggestion list in truth.
Our local paper had an article about the woman who has won the most
points in the fair's garden competition for the last five years. She
entered something like 82 categories!! I was consumed with jealousy. Of
course if I were retired like her I could probably do that too (leaving
aside the fact we now have other things to eat up our free time when
we're retired) but, but, I can't help it, I'm jealous.
