Whoa!  Glad it was rain and not something that hurt!

Yeah, we had something falling what, yesterday or the day before.  I was in my room for a rest and it sounded wonderful on the roof.

I did not get up to see how hard the wind was blowing - didn't care lol - as long as the sirens didn't go off.

I miss rain.  We have a chance after midnight - hope we get it : )

If not, a great excuse for me to go outside like I did yesterday - wasn't too warm - & drip water on plants.  I see a few blooms on two of my melon plants.  Hope after all!

How are your gardenias holding up?

Glad you got rain - a lot of us need it.

Was there any hail?  Some people reported a little the other day.

Lucky stiff, not fair!! lol
Too bad it didn't last longer, but at least you got some!!
None in sight here until maybe next Sunday.
Don't know how they can tell that far in advance,
but hope it's right this time!
Temps here at 110º, 111º, 108º and steady.
Better than frigid ice covered winter though,
in this part of the country anyway.

I think you got more than us Hugs.  We ended up getting less than a quarter of an inch.
