RE: weather

See if you can keep those temps from crossing through Indiana and over to
Ohio, Donna.  The older I get, the more the heat really gets to me.  We have
had rains since Monday night when a tornado touched down near DH's class.
Then Tuesday (when we were supposed to be spraying little wooden treasure
chests at Bible School outside.  What a MESS with the rain!  I couldn't
spray the lacquer indoors for fear of the fumes with the small children in
there.  UGH!  I ended up going in two hours early Wednesday morning with
grandboy Brenden helping me spray the boxes.  They weren't quite dry when
the rains started up again.  We had about a 1/2 hour break to get 60 little
treasure chests sprayed and ready for the children to decorate.  When I got
home, my hollyhocks were laying over in the middle of the driveway.  None of
them were still standing!  They have never offered to even lean over in past
years, but we have had some pretty hefty winds with these storms.  

Pam, wish I could share with you!  (The rain, that is....  Not the heat!)

Gosh what is ma nature up to these days.

Glad no one is in the path of Calf fires..I hope!

Pam any chance that drought will end soon? When is your 'usual' raining

Holli was saying she was getting yet another storm last night... Chris P
when is your garden tour? Are you ready or is this weather effecting you

Tues-Wed (for about 24 hours) I got rain, a few downpours, but mostly just
light rain. Yesterday noticed how much damage it did. Plants are flooping
over, trees weeping with water collected in the leaves. Looks better this
morning but never realized that even light prolonged rain would do that.
Weatherman reported less than an inch total- hum, my wheelbarrel, wagon and
stuff is all FULL (read overflowing)... hum... thinking I got a tad more
than an inch! (not complaining mind you)

now they say I am in for a heat wave this weekend, starting today... sigh,
good time for you to visit Pam, we might be close to that darn 100 mark...
