Glad you got some rain, dawgluver....'bout time, huh?

We had a really unexpected thunderstorm last night, lots of rain -sideways rain, rain bouncing up from the ground (sounds like the Forrest Gump movie, haha) - but it was pretty scary. Really windy, lost power all night and the folks in the neighboring town got hit pretty hard.

Thanks, Kylie. Can't complain about the rain, that's for sure - the whole country needs it. Just kinda hit us unprepared for the outages and severity of the winds and all. Hope your weather has been nice now that you're heading out of winter in your neck of the woods!

Cheers Cheryl

Yes the weather is brightening up somewhat, although today it was raining a lot...we were out walking and got caught in the rain

I'm starting to get a little nervous about Ernesto. It's still headed west, but it's also moving back over water so that could change.

We had about an hour of heavy rain with horrendous thunder early this afternoon.

It sprinkled a bit this morning, and the temps were nice enough we were able to open the windows. We got back from our walk in time tonight, it's doing the thunderstorm thing, and raining!

We are so dry here along the river.

Thanks, dawgluver...the worst is over with and things are back to normal. These desert thunderstorms come on so quickly, and since the ground is so hard from so little rain, we often get floods when they hit.

Your pic of the thunderheads coming in looks ominous, but beautiful. Great shot. What river are you nearby? Just curious. :-)
