Hot here yesterday, today, tomorrow, daftermarrow ~ How 'bout I just let you know when we are unmelted?
Nobody say wet t-shirt?sure did, that was fun and had to go out in it right after it started and it stopped by the time I got home. Nice for a change. It got down to 78° which felt cold when my clothes were wet. Creeping back up into the 90s already. It rained very hard for about a half hour. I'm happy to have it.
A part of 'weather' that nobody talks about. When someone mentions it I say:Speaking of lighting... I saw a bolt yesterday hit about 150yds away. I was standing in my cousins yard looking that direction when it hit one of his dad's old junk cars. It was impressive. I'm sure it woke all the rodents and reptiles living in that old wreck. It certainly made me jump!
I've been at the somewhere else place before as well. A group of us were doing a 6 mile hike in the mountains a few years ago. We had stopped about halfway up the climb (final destination was at 6593 and we started below 3000') to take a break. Just a few minutes after starting the hike again it got really dark very quickly and within 10 minutes it had started pouring down and just a couple minutes after that we were taking lightning strikes very close by. The flash was pretty much timed with the thunder. We were about 3 miles from the car and another 3 to our destination with nothing to do other than keep moving and try to get away from it. Something I'll never forget.A part of 'weather' that nobody talks about. When someone mentions it I say:
"You know how you watch lightning and it always strikes somewhere else? I've been 'somewhere else' before"
We had lots yesterday and I watch how much is cloud-to-cloud, how much is cloud-to-ground, and how far away it is.
It can blow your stuff to pieces.
I actually have a video (yes, I was rolling tape) of the hit 1/4 mile away that blew everything connected to the DSL line apart, years ago. I don't have it on my YouTube page, but probably should.
Hope you can check on your place soon! Let us know when you do!!!!Quite the storm last night and pretty wide spread. Big old trees came down. I am housesitting so no idea of the damage to my property, but did see photos of down trees less than a mile from home. Lots of thunder and lightening. The smaller of the two dogs was pretty scared. It seemed as though the thunder bothered her more than the lightening. She ended up doing her business in the house, in spite of being let out many times yesterday. She was feral when she was younger, and is still fearful.

Thank you. I'll go over some time today. I missed a package yesterday that required a signature here, so I am going to wait until that happens. Also have a zoom bible study, so those two will have to happen before I will even consider it.Hope you can check on your place soon! Let us know when you do!!!!
