Sounds like we are about to have our usual afternoon cloudburst. It's been so hot we can use the rain. Over 100 two days early in the week.

I'm trying to think of the song. Thunder and Lightening, very very frightening, oh me or my-oh.


Having lived in Florida, I don't think this was THAT bad, but I do take lightening very, very seriously when it is close. I can't tell you how many telephones, answering machines, etc, I had to replace because of close strikes, how many days and more that we went without electricity. So we lost it for not even a total minute, and we had to dodge a few branches on the road. But it wasn't fun.

It's hot, humid and sticky. On top of all that it's hot, humid and sticky.
We've been getting rain almost everyday, the last two have been some pretty good storms. Oh and did I mention it was hot, humid and sticky.

I miss the summer thunderstorms but I can't stand the humidity. From LA you can see the thunder clouds 50 miles away in the east over the desert. These thunder clouds rarely spill into LA. We just get the humidity. Not good.
I think we had our warmest day today for the year so far....about 90 in the downtown area. It's been a pretty mild summer so far.
