Who knew you were so feisty TL?

I love it!

It doesn't surprise me!

It's pouring, we have a severe T-storm warning. Lots of thunder and lightening, and possible hail.

Laurie!??!? How are ya girlfriend?

Oh, you aren't Laurie. She did the same thing with taking off the bottoms of her pantsuit. Unfortunately, our boss was a woman.

Within a year the boss lady said she would decide if we could wear pantsuits or not after everyone gave their reason for or against. The day of her decision she showed up late - very unlike her. Until we saw her show up in a pantsuit! She surprised everyone with that move!

And as I sit here at way-too-late-o'clock the rain begins... Cleaning our atmosphere before the heat wave moves in.

I am still getting used to completely different weather than what I have experienced for the last 61 years. Current weather conditions are dry and windy, accounting for the red flag warning and fire weather watch. I'm thinking I will never again see a severe thunderstorm watch or warning. Northern New Mexico has had almost no rain this Spring.

87F, and due to all the rain, the buffalo gnats are hideous! Clouds and clouds of them. The Absorbine Jr works for about 30 minutes, then need to reapply.

65 degrees, and it has been teasing like it will rain, but none so far.

We are getting strobe lighting lightning and thunder booomers good enough to knock your sox off. LOVIN' it! Just so long as there isn't any damage or a power outage I can enjoy this stuff. Unfortunately, a lot of natives get frightened and wonder if the world is ending. A few years ago I (from OH) and my neighbor two doors up (MA native but had lived in IL and FL) were out as the storm was rolling in. Our friend between us (MA native) came out scared to death that the world was ending. We told her it was OK and if there wasn't any lightning she should stay out with us to dance in the rain!

No dancing tonight! I don't want to glow in the dark.

We are getting some heavy duty thunderheads rolling in our way. The thunder is a continuous roll with no breaks and the sky looks like daylight. My house is all lit up. I am going to have to shut the computer and TV off very shortly.
