We've been waiting for rain. Rain has been forecast a few times, but nada. Crops & pasture have been slow to appear. Really slow, & mostly brown. You can imagine how impressed the ponehs have been with that sitch.
Last night though, we got a full meal deal here @ the 4Shoes!
Yep, full on lightning, thunder, high winds, monsoon-style rain, &, just for giggles, hail too.
6 miles away @ the Wildrose, all they got was a gentle shower... So boring.
This rain barrel started the day out empty.
The storm lasted a total of 20 minutes.
Promptly upon the storms end, frog song rose to a deafening level. Humidity is now sky high & air conditioning is no longer an option if I am to retain my sanity.
Garden check this morning revealed some broken kohlrabi stocks, but otherwise no damage. Thankfully the hailstones last night were tiny; in this video you can see little flashes of white flying everywhere.
By noon, Mother Nature had begun steam cooking the Interlake region like it's her full time job paying triple overtime. Crops should be good this year now; I, on the other hand, will have to be most careful not to melt.
