Oh my oh my oh my. There was sunshine today. All day long! OMC! It's been so dark and dreary and rainy FOREVER this spring and summer. I've missed my rays. I NEED my rays! They finally showed up today. And they're supposed to be back tomorrow too! Oh my.
On Monday we had the worst one-day rainfall since record keeping began. Back in the early 1950's a huge hurricane hit our area. There hasn't been one since. Over two days during that storm 120 mm of rain fell. This past Monday there was no hurricane but there was a MONSTER rainfall. In THREE HOURS over 125 mm of rain fell. There was flooding everywhere. We were pretty lucky here. Our power went out for about six hours. (Some areas just got their power back today). It was really hot and humid without the A/C. A tiny bit of water leaked into our basement and about a third of our backyard was submerged in water. OMC! We are so glad that mother didn't make us go outside or anything evil like that. OMC!
Everything is back to normal now. The backyard is squishy but the lake is gone. I can't wait for more sunshine tomorrow. OMC!

Enjoy your sunshine!
Glad to hear that the rain has gone away. Time to recharge in the sun!
