I thought we were going to get rain last night. There were dark clouds and the radar showed a red blob heading to the Sanctuary. The last time it rained was June 13th. I know because we were shopping that night too and we were shopping last night. So I was hoping we'd get rain.
We did not get rain.
All that came was lightening. The storm broke up before it reached the Sanctuary (and I'm guessing it also broke up before it reached the hay ground were our hay is at).
I was rushing around last night trying to get chores done before the storm hit. I needed to fill a water tank and while I was standing around I thought about walking down the driveway to get a better look at the upcoming storm. You know, it's that odd habit certain people have...to watch a storm approaching while standing at the end of the driveway or at the front door.
I was just about to start heading down the driveway when a bolt of lightening flashed right above my head. I opted to step backwards into the barn! Of course standing in the doorway of the barn is probably only slightly safer than being outside but much smarter than walking down the driveway. Although I had an odd thought as the lightening flashed. What would happen if I got struck by lightning and had a full bladder (I did at the time...sorry TMI). I mentioned that thought to my husband and his response "You'd pee your pants." And here I was thinking other more interesting things might happen.
So the storm never hit and this morning it was already 73 degrees at 7AM. It's going to be another scorcher. I shouldn't probably complain. There are others in much hotter areas. The paying job keeps the building 65 degrees so it's a bit of a hit in the face when I step outside and it's 90 degrees. A 25 degree shift in temp is a bit hard to take.
It was a quiet morning this morning as I let the herd out I did a morning video and posted it on our Facebook page if anyone is interesting in viewing it.
The next couple of days are going to be busy. We have another drill team performance on Saturday. I'm worried about Rain and the heat but I guess I'll just have to wait and see how things go. I have a few ideas of blog posts so I may be posting a bit more, or I may not post much. It all depends on where my brain wanders today.
