Thank you too, Addie, for thinking of me. I don't know how to multi quote in one post. :-)
Neither do I. But I am glad to hear you are safe. And most happy that you have gotten some rain.

Glad to read that you aren't dealing with mudslides etc.

To multi quote, you click the "MULTI +" button, next to the quote button, for the first thing you want to quote. You can see it change to "MULTI -". Then do the same thing for any other posts you want to quote, except the last one. For the last one, you just click "QUOTE".

Rained a little bit today, just enough to make it muggier.

It was nice, cool and cloudy today. It looked like it might rain all day, but it didn't.

We didn't go, just opened the windows and got some of the songs. Nice backdrop for the evening.

Last night's weather forecast said that we would probably be getting a bit of wind and rain from the tail end of your Hurricane Bertha today. Obviously nothing like those of you in the teeth of it and certainly not hurricane-like.

It was a bit cloudy and breezy this morning but then cleared up into sunshine. This afternoon I became aware of thunder and then rain. I looked up and it was coming down at such a rate that it was pouring off the pitched roof, completely missing the gutters and coming down outside the windows in a sheet of water. I couldn't see out. It was like being on the inside of a waterfall. It only lasted about ten minutes but it was quite spectacular.
