Our temps have been in the high 90's here in the foothills of NC, and the humidity is terrible. I do think about the people that don't have A/C in their homes, and all the outside workers. This will take it's toll on their health. We had what I call a Summer storm last night. We had ground to cloud lightning for about 2 hours. I sit out in my sun room, and enjoyed nature's true fireworks. I have to admit, I like storms, I think of it as God reminding us that he is the one still in control, not us. Our power was off for 5 hours, so I just sit and watched the display. I could hear sirens and alarms going off every where and was sad for those people. Coming to work the streets were littered with leaves and branches, and I could hear a chain saw at day break. But this is the reason I didn't get any handiwork finished last night to post, I didn't want to do it by candle light. They are calling for a chance of more this evening also. We do need the rain associated with them. We are I believe they said 14" short on rainfall already going into the summer. They will probably put water regulations again soon, no watering lawns, and car washing, trying to reserve what we have. Hope everyone has a good day. Make sure and go to Pat's page and try to figure out what that is she has a picture of?? I have no clue myself.
