BOY IT WAS SCAREY LAST EVENING, BUT EVERYTHING IS FINE FOR NOW.
IT WAS A HHH (HAZEY, HOT, AND HUMID DAY) HERE ON MONDAY. SO IN THE EVENING A BAND OF THUNDER STORMS FORMED FROM PA TO VA. WE WERE LUCKY WE ONLY GOT THE EDGE OF IT IN OUR AREA. HOWEVER IT WAS REALLY SCAREY. THE SKY GOT A FUNNY COLOR, THE RAIN CAME DOWN IN SHEETS, AND THE WIND WAS BLOWING. THE LIGHTENING WAS STREAKING TOO. THE FAMILY WAS IN THE HALLWAY, BUT COULD SEE OUT ONE WINDOW IN ANOTHER ROOM. MAN THE TREES WERE BLOWING SO HARD IT LOOKED LIKE THE LIMBS WERE TOUCHING THE GROUND AT TIMES. SOME OF US WENT AND HIDE, OTHERS STAYED IN THE HALLWAY WITH GRAMMY AND THE FAMILY. THAN WE LOST OUR ELECTRIC. NO LIGHTS, NO AIR. STILL RAINING AND COULDN'T OPEN THE WINDOWS. IT WAS GETTING WARM IN THE HOUSE. THAN THINGS STARTED TO LIGHTEN UP, THE RAIN STOPPED. WE COULD OPEN THE WINDOWS AND THE DOORS. WE ALL GOT INTO THE WINDOWS AND SMELLED THE FRESH AIR. THINGS WERE COOLING DOWN. IT REALLY GOT PLEASANT. GRAMMY AND THE FAMILY WHEN OUTSIDE TO SIDE FOR AWHILE. THEY DIDN'T TAKE ANY OF US OUT. WHAT A BUMMER!!!!!! THEY SAID WE WERE LUCKY SO FAR! TOWARDS TOWN YOU COULD SEE THEY WERE STILL GETTING IT. THE SKY WAS SO DARK, THAN THEY SAW MORE LIGHTENING IN THE DISTANCE, SO THEY ALL CAME BACK INSIDE. YES WE WERE LUCKY, CAUSE THAT STORM NEVER CAME OUR WAY. ABOUT 2 HOURS LATER OUR ELECTRIC CAME BACK ON AND THINGS WERE NORMAL AGAIN.
WE GOT TO WATCH THE TV INSTEAD OF LISTENING TO THE RADIO.
HEY KRINGLE.....IF YOUR READING THIS.....HOW WAS IT OVER IN YOUR NECK OF THE COUNTY?
WELL TODAY IS ANOTHER DAY AND IT'S ALREADY STARTING OUT HHH AGAIN. THEY SAY WE MAY GET TO 100 TODAY! SURE HOPE NOT. THEY ARE ALSO CALLING FOR CHANGE OF MORE THUNDER STORMS. HOPE NOT!
WERE EVER YOU ARE PLEASE HAVE A GREAT DAY AND BE SAFE.
OH ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THINGS. MEOWMY WAS IN THE DAYLILLY GARDEN YESTERDAY AND TOLD GRAMMY WE HAVE ANOTHER VISITOR. IT WAS DOWN NEAR THE FISH POND AND CRAWLING THROUGH THE FENCE TOWARDS THE POND AND THE ONE FLOWER BED. CAN YOU GUESS WHAT IT WAS??????? GRAMMY DID!!!!! YEAP! IT WAS A SNAKE!!!!! GRAMMY IS SCARED OF SNAKES, SHE SAID, SHE DON'T WANT TO KILL THEM, SHE JUST WANTS THEM TO STAY IN THE FIELD ON THERE SIDE OF THE FENCE. MEOWMY TOLD HERE IT WAS A GARDNER SNAKE AND IT WAS A LONG ONE.......SHE WOULD HAVE MOVED IT, BUT SHE COULDN'T GET TO IT. SO NOW GRAMMY IS LOOKING EVERYWHERE WHEN SHE GOES OUTSIDE. GUESS SHE'LL RUN THE OTHER WAY IF THEY MEET!
HAVE A GREAT DAY.
Those storms came through our area (MI) just before noon time...and like you said they were furry scary...it got furry dark here, like the sun had gone down! We had about 1.5 inches of rain in about 1/2 hour...to the north of us, one man was killed when a tree fell on his garage where he was working. Horrible.
A lot of peeps still have no power this morning.
We could see on the radar maps how fast this storm traveled across the country!
Then later we saw that it was near Washington DC where our Grandmeowmy lives, and our uncle...we think you are not too far from there?
We get snakes in our yard, too, but thankfully none are poisonous here except for the Mattawan Rattler, which meowmy has nevfur seen here.
Howefur she is NOT scared of snakes, she will even pick them up if they are small enough.
She had to rescue a whole nest of little garden snakes once, the dog was trying to do away with them...terriers are like that...
Stay safe! Stay cool!
Have a nice day!
Pipo & Minko
