storm warning  
This is take two of the hope-I-get-a-storm program.

The mist, as I speak, is pouring into my meadow.  And I mean pouring.  It's drifting over the trees from the West, and pouring down onto the field.  A very interesting phenomenon.  The lighting has gone from cloudy-but-summer-day to near twilight.  And a bit ago I heard thunder in the distance, so I should disconnect.

At least it rained last night and this morning.  There's massive flooding out west, and even flooding north of me by 50 miles or so, but here in my town we're "dry as a bone."  Not, really, compared to the Southwest.  But for us, dry: if you dig down six inches the soil is drier than it is on top, which is quite unusual in these parts.

There goes that thunder, again.

Wish me luck.

So, how'd you fare?

We've been getting regular energetic dumps, usually after 4 pm, most of the past five days.
There've been some spectacular storms, keeping the oak trees outside the windows whipping like frenzied broccoli.

weather
We got a moderate amount of rain, and some reasonable thunder and lightning. We aren't quite as parched as before. But everyone else seems to have gotten the lion's share of the water, really. I'm still waiting for that dramatic storm to come through.

This evening's weather is par for the course: we were originally forecast (I think) 70% chance of rain with intermittent thunder showers. It is now clear and cool, and the rain for tomorrow has dropped from an original forecast of something like 60% down to 40%. Wouldn't be surprised if tomorrow's rain completely vanishes before it even gets here.

I worry about this global warming thing, I do. It's supposed to bring more erratic weather, and longer dry and wet spells, and I think it's doing just that.
