STORMY DAYS


No outside work Monday, yesterday, or today.

We need the rain so I won't complain. However, I don't want the bad stuff that sometimes comes with it (hail, lightning, wind, etc).  It's definitely been some days for inside projects, and I've done a few of those.  I'll share the pictures of those soon.  They call these pop up thunderstorms...it's nice and sunny and then in a matter of an hour or so, the skies get dark and the few clouds in the sky have blown up into huge thunderstorms.


The weather down here along the coast is definitely odd at times.  We get storms that come up from the Gulf, we get storms that come down from the North and sometimes we get both of them at the same time that collide and it rains for days.  Of course last year, it barely rained, so I'd rather take this.


I believe tomorrow and Friday are supposed to be better, and this weekend it will be hot and dry and back up to a high Sunday of 97.  Ugh.

hope it does not get hot and humid, I can take the dry heat, just not the humidity. At least the rain cuts down on having to water, 109 here Sunday, 106 on Monday, had to water potted plants every day and they still looked stressed.

we are having a grey, misty today today but that means fewer black flies and time to catch up on some inside projects. i am looking forward to pics of more of your projects. wow 97???? i don't think i could breathe!!!

Being from AZ originally. Rain still is a magical substance. :)

Indeed. At least it lacks humidity!

I think we northerners have your hot dry summer from last year. It is way too dry for this time of year. We are 50% below what are levels should be for this time of year and it is 96 degrees right now. Things are already crunchy and we dont usually get that way until August. I think the weather really likes to keep us on our toes.

do you have tornados there dorothy?

The Stay @ Home-Gardener said...

I'm going to remain in the basement until it all passes. Yep. That is what I am going to do! :)

Keep your hat or your umbrella handy this coming weekend; I know the weather channel is predicting 98 for most days of the weekend but wunderground has Monday up to 104 and as we both know the humidity is ridiculous! We had some more pop-up showers this morning and after the rain stopped, my car and I swam home through the air. There's just no other way to describe it. Happy weekend to the two of you. I'll be at ApolloCon.

Oh, alas the humidity is almost always here. This evening it's about 87%. I just took the trash cans out for pick up tomorrow and my shirt is stuck to me, wet from just being outside for a few minutes.

It's 97 with high humidity. Damp, wet, sticky and all around yucky. No fog, no cool, just moist heat. ;-)

Rain is a pretty awesome thing huh? And as you well know, when we don't have it, it's amazing how quickly things go from bad to worse.

1st Man said...

As a matter of fact we do! Not often but they do happen, and knock on wood, never been IN one, near them yes. I'll get you and your little dog too! LMAO

1st Man said...

Ahhh, a basement. If only. No basements or cellars here. They do have them, but they are very rare. What I wouldn't give for one. Not just for storms but just to store stuff and keep canned goods and such down there.

1st Man said...

OMG, I just saw local weather, yeah they are thinking 100 on Sunday and hotter next week. Ugh. Swimming in the air, great way to describe it to outsiders. Thanks and have fun! Dinner soon!

Bugger you. At least you got rain. It went all around me but NOTHING on my dirt patch. Darn.

I just had to say hi. :) I'm in Kansas and it's been very hot here already too, but finally enjoyed some rain last night that helped a bit today. I've been digging around on your blog a little, and it's just great. Love the land, love the farmhouse, and love everything you want to do with it. A country girl like myself can appreciate (and envy) it all. Good luck going forward!

1st Man said...

Hey, that happens more often than not here too, ha. You'll get some soon!

1st Man said...

Wow, thank you for the kind words. I appreciate it. Ugh this heat seems to be everywhere huh? The rain is always welcome. Thank you again for commenting, it was very nice! It's going to be a long process but we'll get there, no hurry, right?
