Yes, yes, yes, Ain’t it great? Also lots of nifty lightning and thunder.

EXCEPT! One of my cats is in the closet, he can't stand thunder, poor guy, he is scared to death.

Our dog is the same with rain. When he was younger he actually jumped through a screen to get in the house.

We saw a dandy off in the distance moving away from us yesterday......and the sun continues to pound on us in the upper 90's and low 100's. The colour of wheat/ rye just before havest, that's the colour of our lawns.

Yeaahhh, but that means then I have to cut it.
The front and side 40 I'm not bothering to water, but the back 1/2 acre I am.

Its raining buckets here, and has been for more than an hour. The storm looks like it stretches past Richmond. I guess ill have to grill those porkchops in the broiler tonight.

That embarrassing....go to HD and buy an outdoor table umbrella and place it in a christmas tree stand next to the grill. I am surprised I needed to reprimand you on this matter.

It's raining here... again... lawn needs to be mowed about once every 8 days now.

And somehow, it's only windy on the weekend. Sat/Sun, choppy and blowing, monday morning and it's like glass.

I hope it rains every day for a month. I just sodded a section of my yard and it would save me money from using the county water system to water the lawn. We have had rain the last four days, though yesterday wasn't a good downpour like the few days previous.
