The weatherman of course told us we had a good chance of rain coming so I have been watching the radar all day. I thought I would get nothing because the clouds were going by and no rain. When I heard thunder I unplugged everything including the phone. I got .15 inch of rain. I held my breath the whole time because I could see blue sky and sun beyond the clouds. My dogs who got to come in for the heat were wanting to come in for the thunder. I let them in. What have I started. It isn't much but where it runs off buildings it helps. Also the pattern has changed and that is a good sign.
