Grrr! This is the 7th time!

Okay, I understand that we were 4 and 3/4 inches behind in rain fall, but do we have to get it all at once?

This is the 7th thunderstorm to roll through since 6:30 this morning! What bothers me is that they're warning of high straight line winds and large damaging hail but none of these thunderstorms in my area had any of those, just colossal downpours and a lot of rumbling and claps of thunder.

That means with each one that passes through, my odds of getting damage increases.I guess that's what happens when you're in the 90's for days on end with high dew points and humidity.

Who did the rain dance, lol!

Anyway, if I should disappear, it's not because I'm out having fun in the sun, but due to a power outage. <sigh>

Rant over...carry on.

    You're free to send it my way, but I don't really think it works like that.

      If I could find the person who did that rain dance, I'd fly them over to you in a jumpin' jack flash!

      I'm all about sharing the wealth!

    Normally I'd tell you I abhor anything from Michigan, but please keep sending the rain my way. I'm afraid my lawn will combust from a single spark.

    If you want me to go on arguing, you'll have to pay for another five minutes.

      Whatever did Michigan do to you? :confused:

      Oh, and it wasn't my fault, whatever it was. :p

      Thanks Kim!

      I just read what a derecho was and now the 9th thunderstorm is brewing as I write this.

      We've had approximately one per hour since I woke up this morning and not one has caused damage to my home yet.

      But now... I'm scared.

      We have about a hundred 300 foot tall pines lining the West and South side of the property...and I'm home alone right now, yikes!

      Okay, I'm just saying a little prayer...

      I'm good! Exhales...

        Sirens are now sounding for the first time today, so I'm heading to the basement.

        I'll be back, I promise.

    Hey, send some rain my way. We're pretty dry over here.

    Holy Moly!

    I thought branches were flying and pelting the house, but it was huge hail balls!

    They've stopped for now, but the sky is still quite angry, growling and roaring.

    Some small branches down thus far, hopefully no big ones to follow.

    And it just started pouring again...

    Wow. Crazy weather. So glad to hear you have a basement. Sure wish we had one.

    And sorry, that was me doing the rain dance. But the Texas skies are not cooperating.

    A little worried the city is allowing fireworks tomorrow. Not too smart. This place is really dry. I'll water down the yard and the roof and hope no fireworks come this way.

    Stay safe Terra!

      Thanks Lori oh, and sorry you missed your target. We sure have enough to go around. Wish I could send some your way, the rain I mean, not the hail and high winds.

      It's still coming down in buckets. I'm quite sure we're not behind in rain fall now. :rolleyes:

      You stay safe too!

        OMG!

        What is that blinding light in the sky?

        Oh, haha! It's the sun.

        First time I've seen it all day. Hope it's a sign that I will no longer have to search for an ark for sale on Craig's list anymore. :rolleyes:
