The Snowdrift crabapple has never looked as glorious as it is this year!
Almost makes the long cold winter worthwhile.
Afternoon update: Cloudy. Then lots and lots of lightning and thunder.
Then the heavens opened and we got 1/2" in about 6 minutes.
Hear how hard it was hitting the sunroom roof? You couldn't even make out all the thunder in this vid.
Next morning - update:
Now I'm sooooo thankful for yesterday's quick downpour showing me that the upstairs gutter was blocked. Because had I not cleaned it out then, the next heavy thunderstorm (again, no wind thankfully) in the middle of the night that dumped a whole INCH more rain within 20 minutes would have totally flooded the sunroom while I slept. Talk about your silver lining!
The radar show LOTs more potential storms/showers for the next couple of days. I already have 5 barrels of water but no need to use it on anything at this point, that's for sure. Why, I can actually see the broad beans back in one of the golf course bins grow by the hour. Yay. So is the lawn. *sigh* At least the sunroom is dry. :-D
Oh, how much rain are we "enjoying"? Ask the ducks. Even they are looking for high ground and are perching on the roof!
