whoa folks, I'm watching the radar at the National Weather Service, and a tornado warning is headed RIGHT at me. I have battened down the hatches, and now it turned dark, supposed to at 8:45 pm though. At least I can not watch the sky anymore

All is well at my farm!! The closest tornado to touch down was the next county west of me. I now feel kinda silly with all the preparations I took. Besides bringing all my vegetable and flower starts inside, and I was thinking if a tornado hit my house it was going to get these buggers whether they are inside or outside, I dismantled the sawhorses and 14 foot 2x12's the plants were on, so the wind could not pick up the boards and toss them through the greenhouse glass. I left all the goats together so they could escape en mass if something happened to the barn.

Just got a lot of rain, and did I mention the wind??

Thanks for asking!

Right now in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California the temperature is almost 80 degrees. It should stay warm for a couple more days and then it will drop.

After the early and fierce arrival of summer we having some spring, its much cooler today. Go Figure! On Monday there was a strorm, Tues day that horrid kind of furious humid heat that squashes you before or in the lull of a summer storm, yesterday fierce thunder and lightning all day and into the night, and today a gently sunny and benevolent day. My sweet peas shot up in the rain and the tomatoes are so tall!
