I didn't realize how much we needed rain till I mowed the yard last week.  Low parts of the yard where water collects were still lush and green, but higher places were dried out and brown, and the ground was hard, rough and bumpy.  I watch the weather and was looking at the radar last night which didn't show much, but around midnight we got it.  No apparent wind but heavy rain with lots of thunder and lightning.  The thunder and lightning went on for hours.  The rain didn't last that long but there was a lot of it.  Fortunately the furkids aren't bothered by it.  If lightning hits particularly close to the house, the cat may sit up and look at the window, but that's it.  John

Persues is very afraid of lighening or high winds and runs to hide. Apollo does not care much at all.

It was supposed to storm some Sunday, but it did not come.

THis summer has given more moisture than usual I think and we need it. But the added moisture has caused flash flooding in Helena and I am sure you saw the news on Yellowstone before.

No, I haven't heard anything about Yellowstone.  Last night it thundered and there was lightning, but not a drop of rain.  I looked at the radar and it just showed a tiny cell passing right over.  It's been in the 90s for so long now, everybody is tired of the heat.  I think it's supposed to hit 96 today and for at least the next week.  As usual, part of my yard needs mowed and part of it is all dried out.  John

THe other week they had historic flooding there, altering a lot of landscape and forcing it to TOTALLY close for the first time.

Wow, I don't know how I missed that.  Maybe some of that water will make it down to lake Meade where they really, really need it.  I'll look up Yellowstone.

I told my friends that because of the dry weather my yard has some bald spots, so I was going to let the rest of the grass grow longer and do a comb-over.  John
