We were warned that we could expect a few thunder showers yesterday afternoon, but my god what a storm that turned out to be. I had taken a stroll down to the city flea market, it was an extremely hot and humid day, the vendors were all anxious to leave and get out of the heat. All of a sudden the winds kicked up, big time, the sounds of all of the merchandise being blown over and crashing was as loud as the thunder, with papers & posters flying through the air and numerous canvas tents that most of the vendors use for shade were flying about like balloons.
I made it to my car right as the rains came. I felt bad leaving so many of the vendors in such a state, but I asked a few of them if they needed by help, but they all seemed good to go. I’m sure thousands of dollars were lost yesterday in merchandise, props and equipment, not a profitable one for most of them in the end.
Apparently there are several preachers who are letting their mouths get away with them. While I was looking up the previous Preacher’s Blooper, there were several more to choose from, so I decided to check a few of them out. This one is seriously a “Blooper” I mean what was this guy thinking anyway?
Well we finally are getting ourselves a bit of rain. It has been so dry here that people have been starting to freak out. I just wish that I had rolled my car windows up last night! It wasn’t too awfully bad, they were not all the way down and we aren’t getting a hard rain. But even a light shower will help at this point and time.
I went to my first meeting with the local Elks lodge last night. It is a small group of folks that are trying to do a lot of good for the community and I have to give them my respect for that. They focus on kids and Vets, two very well deserved causes.
The meeting didn’t last as long as I thought it would. They kept it up beat and interesting. I just might have to join them after all. It’s all good!
After suffering for so long without a single rain drop, with the threat of rationing looming around us, I’m pleased to see that we are finally getting a nice steady rain fall today. People like me that have planted gardens have been resorting to using our garden hoses and racking up a high water bill, which really bites.
