What a day!
It rained here on and off most of last nite. A nice slow, gentle rain. Got a little bit of lightening and thunder, but not much.
This morning around 10 it was raining HARD and as dark as all get out! I figured IÂd be finding stuff to do inside all day, and resigned my seedlings to a day in the dark!
Around 11 the sun suddenly came outÂand I do mean suddenly! I swear, in less than 10 minutes there wasnÂt a cloud in the sky! I carried all my seedlings out into the sun and went outside to get some stuff done, and I was too HOT! Came in and put shorts and a short sleeve blouse on, and went back out. A little over an hour ago a few new clouds showed up, but it wasnÂt too bad out. I had checked NOAA before I went out, and there wasnÂt anything "upstream," so I figured, no problem!
Then the sun went away COMPLETELY again, and it got COLD! I kept working anyway, since I was in the middle of something (and, hey, after a nite in a National Park under a rock, whatÂs cold!) But I finally got so cold my hands werenÂt functioning anymore, and the sky was getting DARK! I got all my stuff put away again, and carried the seedlings back in, and now IÂm huddled inside by my little heater wearing just about everything I own, trying to get WARM again! ItÂs so dark outside I have to have the lites on in the house! It just started thundering, and raining lightly again! At least I got my rain gauge put back out for the summerÂI was wondering all last nite and this morning how much I gotÂso at least IÂll know how much it adds up to for the next few days.
ItÂs not really all that cold out, but with the high humidity, when the wind came up, it sure FELT cold! The grass and plants are lovinÂ the "natural" water, and even the plants I have for the swap, which are on the "windward" side of my deck, were well rained on last nite. They should really take off now!
WHAT A DAY!
ItÂs lookinÂ nasty out there now, and I sure hope I donÂt get any hail!
Gonna go check NOAA again,
