What A Storm

Last night we had a storm lots of thunder and lightening but just one hard down pour.

So no sitting on the porch this morning the humidity was very high and it was quite warm. 

So I puttered around the house doing small jobs and a small load of laundry. Read a lot of the book my daughter had given me way back for my birthday in Feb. Quite interesting even though it is fiction I can see this kind of life for new comers to the Midwest to stake a claim. Harsh summers and very bitter cold winters. I'm really into this book. Then on an off I got on the computer.

As I took the trash out to street I saw off to the southeast some very strange looking clouds and new we were in for a nasty storm. Soon the thunder started to rumble and the wind came up hard. The rain started coming down in sheets. It reached the windows on the carport side. I have a wide carport that used to house a Class C so you can imagine how wide it is. 

When it slowed down a little I opened the door and the wind had knocked down a plant and the stand so no rain was capture in the rain meter once again. It is still raining  very hard.

Fred, wanted out and I knew what that was going to be like since he doesn't like rain or water for that matter. He has just enough room left after the porch to stay under the awning. Silly dog.

Good Night All 


  1. Gosh, I wish we would see some rain for a change. More and more homeowners here are letting the yards go brown, and many are taking out the sod and putting down rocks. I worry about the trees - Sac has such beautiful trees and they are going to be so weakened by the drought that a lot of them will fall.

  2. Leave to Fred, always figuring out a way

  3. Hi Gypsy,

    I wish you all would get rain too. We had just a bad rain last night and it rained all night too. Still very cloudy and we are expecting more today.

    HI JMD,

    Yes leave it to Fred. lol
