We had some severe thunderstorms earlier today. Got some good rain also. Poor Teddy. My son was in the store and left him in the car. A couple of really big claps happened. When my son came out, Teddy was shaking. He climbed in my son's lap and wouldn't leave while he was driving. Then he made a stop again for just a minute or two. Got out of the car. Again, the same thing happened. So he brought him to me. As soon as he came in the door, he jumped up on my bed and crawled under the covers. I held him during the rest of the storm with him under the blanket and just kept patting and rubbing his tummy and chin. We had a few more lound cracks and rolls of the storm. It took quite a while for him to stop shaking. I am not one to pooh pooh an animal's fear.

The storms are gone and it is now in the 70's. I am grateful for the rain. Like so many, we needed it.

I'm hearing some thunder. I hope it kicks up a breeze. I'd love to air the place out for awhile.

Sorry to brag, but we had the most delightful weather today: 25 C (77 F) was our high and it felt like 25 C! Going down to 15 C (59 F) overnight.

It was only in the 80's FINALLY today, what a relief.
Then, there were loud noises outside, I don't know what it was.
Then I saw something outside falling, I don't remember what it's called....it looked like the stuff that comes out of the water faucets in my house when they leak. I think I once saw this happen outside the last time in MAY this year.
OH......yeah, we had a tiny bit of ....rain, yeah I think it's called rain.

I hope you went out and danced in it. It is the only way to get more. The rain gods expect you to pay homage.

I had to stop rolling and laughing on the floor. I hit the wall.
