The Tempest

Not Exactly Shooting For \”Miss Congeniality\”

And Me Without My Parasol…

Blue Springs is just north of Warrensburg.

Okay, since I had no idea this image would continually update, it’s apparent you can’t see the storms here as they were last night. Suffice it to say this picture showed mostly red, yellow and dark green.

For well over a week (at least) it has been hot and dry. The ground all around the area has been baked and huge cracks had formed everywhere. It’s been all I could do to keep the soil around the house somewhat moist so that the foundation doesn’t shift and crack. Unfortunately it has been next to impossible to fill the demands of the baked ground. All anyone around here was saying was bring on the rain. Myself included.

Everywhere in the area you see wilted (or dead) gardens where they are normally always lush and green. Ours included.

Then, at around ten in the morning yesterday, the rain came. And it’s been here ever since. Massive storms. I have already had to empty my rain gauge once this morning and that makes for about five inches thus far.

Now the rains are here and will be hanging around off-and-on through tomorrow. So much for my outdoor projects.

Be careful what you wish for.
