Re: Donna and tornadoes/OKLA storms


Well, that was fast. I think the map was not live. Wind has brought clouds in and it's getting gray. Won't be long. Hopefully it has left Donna & Cathy alone now.

I checked the weather for here.  They say 50% chance scattered storms today
then nothing until Wednesday.  I looked at the map, and if it is correct,
timewise, it's all still over Donna. So if it's coming this way, I wouldn't
expect it until tonight, though it is breezy.

Dont count on the weather cooperating..... It was supposed to dry up
here for the next week..... of course, they are wrong, we are now under
a severe thunderstorm warning... it has already began raining and the
preceding wind was as bad as last weeks... here I go again. sigh.


take care all and stay safe....seems ma nature is attacking everyone
from the fires in California to the flooding in the midwest, to the heat
on the east coast....

 Yep! We have started sandbagging operations to shore up the levees on
our stretch of the Mississippi. Quincy is on a bluff, so the town is
not threatened, but the water treatment facility is. One of our two
bridges is closed because of water on the Missouri side, but the other
is useable as is the new bridge to Hannibal, MO. River is supposed to
crest on Thursday at or above 1993 levels. Just hope our levees hold
this time. No rain predicted for the next several days, but the
humidity is awful, and I'm behind on weeding already. Am trying to
catch up on mail after having daughter, son in law, and two grandsons
visiting for a week. Nice to see them, but also to be getting back to
normal!

Just be careful what you wish for..... It would be nice if we could

some of our rain over to you. I see that Iowa, Wisc, and Ind have way
too much!

We need it too. It's terribly dry here and the heat wave isn't
helping any.
With temperatures in the upper nineties for the past two days, and
predicted to continue for another two or three, there is a 30 percent
chance of a passing thunder shower. Yesterday afternoon it got very
dark and thunder rumbled in true Hudson Valley fashion, but there was
only the very slightest sprinkle of rain. The drive wasn't even damp
under the trees. Maybe somebody got some of it, but we sure
didn't.

Send some of that rain this way, will you please? We're deep into the
drought left over from 18 months ago. Even my Vitex is wilted!

I just got my electricity back... but it was just out from 5 AM
until now..
about 8 AM. That doesn't sound bad .... but it is such a weird
feeling
knowing how dependent we are on electricity. It is still raining
and we
have already had almost 3.5 inches since last night about 10 PM.
