Sunday Blasts of Lightning, Roar of Thunder, Deluges

Sunday, that is what my friend in Hueytown who works clear across Birmingham reported. A large plate over the water drainage system was blown off and water shot 10 feet high.

I have watched huge weather systems aimed  at me all day. They dissipate or turn South or North of me. Living on a plateau has advantages. Not even a drizzle or mist has fallen today where I live. I am okay with that.

I am feeling much better, but still sound ill.

My light on my side porch blew out, so it is pitch black outside my home. Hopefully, I can find someone to change the bulb. I cannot.

Even though it is the middle of the night, I must go tend to the two quarts of strawberries in the refrigerator. At some point when I was ill, I did not care if they rotted. Now, I care.

My hen from the crockpot was taken out earlier on Sunday. I will get four meals from the breasts. Exbf will get the rest, maybe three meals for him.

Your turn
If your are in Alabama or Tennessee, did you get some of these storms? Anyone, anywhere get rain or too little?


  1. Thanks for your comment on my blog. Yep, a true sign of illness is not caring about the food waiting to be processed. I used to live in Texas so know all about weather!

    1. Susan,
      I need to go deal with strawberries and zucchini. Most of my weather comes straight out of Houston area!

  2. We have had gentle rain. And welcome it.

    1. EC,
      Thankfully, the storm that just came through here only gave me gentle rain.

  3. I am in CA and wishing for some rain. I am so fed up with everything dying from lack of water and rationing. Right now I just want to be surrounded by GREEN!

    1. Desert Woman,
      Someone told me CA was brown in summer, well at least where she lived in Consumne. A big red blob on radar came very close, but I only got a gentle rain with about three minutes of wind. My green is above my ankles and needs mowing. Actually, I cannot see the neighbors' houses for all the green in our yards. I'll send you a bit of my rain.


For the present, I am taking comment moderation off the blog.
