So yesterday afternoon about supper time it got freaky dark, clouds rolled in and things started blowing around with a very intense wind storm that was obviously bringing something bad in the form of rain from hell. It grew dark fast with purple black sky's and we quickly battened down the hatches putting things on the deck in a large wooden box, like patio chair and lounger cushions and plants needed to be herded into a corner and chairs placed over top for fear that they would be damaged from the intense wind.
The weather channel warned us of tornado's ... It was interesting watching this storm front come in and then BANG ... it hit. RAIN AND WIND AND A FURY OF paper leaves and odds and ends blowing everywhere for less then 5 minutes. The rain hit and it left just as quickly, 5 minutes of fat plops and some gushes and that was it.
No thunder, no lightening, no deluge with rain pouring on everything giving the gardens and lawn and all a good soak. NADA ... ZIP. It was a pitiful sad little disappointing storm.
I guess I should be grateful that what the weather channel was calling for didn't hit and do damage here... other places got way worse then what we had.
Hope everyone has a nice weekend!
