Thar be rain...!

Oh glorious thunderclouds forming to the South,
it wasn't much of a rain, just a heavy downpour
lasting only a few minutes...

But, we'll take anything we can get at this point...

More storms are brewing this morning
and temps have dropped...
'scuse me while I go sacrifice a goat to the Gods...

I'll take being wet from a little rain over being wet from a lotta sweat any ol' day!
If you run outta goats...I'll send you Cat Daddy...if you don't mind an old one!

Oh how I long for a few days of good 'ole summer southern thunder storms! It got wonderfully dark a couple of days ago and rained for probably all of ten minutes! It's better than nothing, but I sure love a long heavy thunder storm! LOL

Wow...those are some wicked looking clouds; too bad they did not bring more rain your way. I heard on the news they lost cattle due to heat in Iowa. Sad....Praying for a cool down for all those states with the HOT HOT weather.

my laugh of the day? sacrificing your goat to the gods !!! it is TOO hot to laugh, but that did it.
my day continues in the tree. how insane can ones life be, anyway? but then i believe i am asking the wrong person !

Well, it's a little (alot) cooler this evening - slight drizzle but as humid as can be. Our hostas and daylillies got scorched too. Some look pretty sad but I expect they will recover next year.

However the hydranga and butterfly bush are thriving even in the heat.

By next year I hope to be posting from a place deep in the mountains where it's a lot cooler and the air is a lot cleaner. ATB!
