I wish it would hit here RF - it's been looking like rain most of the day but the sun just came out.

Kay, are you getting pounded with rain in your area?

It's a cool 52F here today.

Why can't we just have a normal, mellow, rainy day? :))

BOOOOOOOMM FLASH FLASH BOOOOOOM

Then the start of the pounding rain and fierce wind at 5am!! We're dog sitting Lucy, our neighbors dog, and there was no consoling her. Poor little thing was having a major panic attack.
We're just not used to house rattling thunder and daylight flashes in these parts. It's been raining on and off all day, but for the most part it seems to be over now.
Phew!!

What is your weather like right now?

Oh, poor Lucy! One of my cockers and my dalmation were terrified of thunder, and inconsolable. The dal would climb up on my lap and howl pathetically. Beagle is not bothered by thunder, but she hates to go out if it's raining.

We had an absolutely gorgeous 68F today. Made for a nice noon walk.

CG, I meant to say earlier, that's quite a shot of the jet flying overhead! We get them all the time here, so much so that I hardly notice them.

Today's CA thunderstorm passed us by this time , I think we were too far east. It did rain last night a little, hoping for more.

Cheryl, that isn't my picture of the jet, just one I found on Google Images. It is the type of plane that went overhead, though. However, the one that went over our house was close enough for me to see the fins, but not close enough to see the pilot like in the picture.

It was spring here today. Went up to 52, sun on and off. Tuesday is supposed to be about the same, but they are calling for highs near 70 on Wednesday! Too early, I say, but I'll still enjoy it. To me, 70 is a pretty perfect temperature. I hear it's around that temp year-round in San Diego. Unfortunately, we can't afford to live there. Besides, it's way too far away from our kids! Priorities.
