I love a good thunder storm! Thunder and heavy rain lull me right to sleep.

I don't like to drive in it though!

Oh, it is so lovely to fall asleep listening to the rain....no, we never drive in it if we can help it. Once got caught in a downpour so bad that everyone just pulled off the road until it slowed down. No visibility at all.

Well, it climbed up to the mid to high 90s, but I actually went to the beach with 'the beast' (doggie) who destroyed 2 coconuts, in about 2 hours. The Gulf was like bath water. A/C still running 24/7. But after just walking 'the beast', there's a slight breeze, and not too humid. I can take that.

This is Sunday 9:45 PM. it is still 92* and the a/c is still on. Low humidity so that is a good thing. But on the other hand it is like putting your head into a hot oven...lol we have been 103* for the past couple of days. They say we are going to cool down this coming week to 90+ ...a cool down to me is 70*.

Barbara, have James check the wear and tare on your tires..;-)

Here in Melboure Australia it's a sunny Spring day, 14 degrees celcius (sorry, 57.2 farenheit, had to google that). What a shame I'm too sick with a cold to go and enjoy the sunshine .

I hate when that happens! Sometimes when I have a cold, I like to go lie in the sun for a little while (not long enough to burn). I say I'm baking my cold away. lol
