Be Careful of What You Wish For

This House was hit in July 
We've been in a drought down here in Georgia for awhile, ending last year about 10 inches of rain below where we should have been, and this year wasn't doing very well either.  We had to keep watering the lawn and garden, something you shouldn't have to do in the south.  I kept muttering that we needed rain.
Well times have changed, we've had some kind of rain nearly every day for the last month.  Some days it dribbles, some days it pours, some days it steams and some days the lightning is too close, no time between sight and sound ----sound travels (roughly 1200 feet a second or 1 mile in 5 seconds, and I usually count the time between sight and sound.
Miss Kitty has spent a bit of time hiding under the couch, she likes loud sounds, but she doesn't like lightning.  The storm was bad enough yesterday that I felt like crawling under there with her.
Houses have been struck nearly every day here this summer and trees (seriously big trees) have fallen on a number of houses.
Yesterday in Savannah

This week in Savannah
I'm beginning to think that drought doesn't sound too bad.

  1. It's amazing how the weather can go from one extreme to the other. Thank you for accepting The Sunshine Award, I enjoyed reading the answers to your questions.

  2. Looks like you have been experiencing some very odd weather patterns as we have over here although your weather is far more extreme than ours. One of our cats was frightened of thunder and disappeared under the bed until she lost her hearing now she sits in the window bottom and watches:)
