I woke up this morning hearing lots and lots of thunder out to the west of us. The seven o'clock weather report on the TV said that there was a line of very strong storms with lots of lightning going to slowly move through our area. The heavy storms are trailing in a line from southwest to northeast and that line is now to the northwest of us and moving slowly to the south. My oldest dog is so afraid of thunder and most everything that goes "bang". I worry about her when she starts shaking real bad. If I notice her starting to shake, I may give her some "Rescue Remedy" that seems to help calm her.
I bought a rain/wind gauge at the flea market last Spring and have been meaning to put it up since then. I only seem to think about it when it is raining. Oh well, I just now hear the first drops of rain on the roof, and the thunder is getting louder and louder and even before I got halfway through this sentence it is coming down in bucket fulls. Of course the satellite TV went off the air. The TV just came back on. That is one problem with satellite TV, very thick thunder storm clouds can and do block the signal. But it does surprise me how well it does work even in bad weather. Now, you all have a great day today whether the weather is sunny or stormy, you hear?
