Decided that I really needed to get up and stretch, so I decided to go out and pull some plants out of the garden. They were pretty well dead, and slug bit, so I started working. First load, fine, Rudee even took a couple tomatoes (he seems to be a bit gourmet in his taste, he will eat the Supersweet 100's, tolerate the yellow pear tomatoes, but literally drops the Beefsteak tomatoes. Eh...)
So I was working along and-
Husband comes out, says we need to get things unplugged, go in the house. I run Rudee back in his kennel, and start pulling cords right and left, as does Husband, when he comes in the house.
Nothing. There was not rain, no noise, light show nothing.
We waited. I told husband maybe that was it.
Then the wind started to pick up again. We watched as the leaves started spraying off the trees, Husband kept cheering, "Go, leaves, go! Land in the neighbor's yard!" Cracked me up... Then we started to have rain.
I counted to 16, then we heard the rumble. Rain started in earnest. We sat and watched the rain. I knit. We checked on Rudee. It obviously traumatized him deeply, the way he was snoring... Finally, but finally, it looked like the sun, or at least less clouds came out.
And I just received an email from my CERT leader saying that he called off a drill we were going to have today, as he didn't want anyone out in lightning, if we could avoid it.
Works for me!
Now I think I will sneak out for a minute or two and get the last of the garden 'stuff' taken care of, before the next storm hits. What am I dealing with? Oh... METAL tomato cages.
