We finally got some much needed rain.
I heard thunder this morning, so I immediately turned on the sprinkler
and considered washing my car to make sure it did not pass us by.
The early A.M. thunder left us high and dry, but we finally received
a little over one inch of rain in about an hour with an afternoon thunderstorm.
Unfortunately, this cloud did not have a silver lining, the storm spawned some tornadoes
about an hour north of us. At least 12 homes were destroyed and 4 people were injured.
We have more rain in the forecast . . .
for a week from Saturday.
