Darcie loves a good storm and I thought of her when I saw this one rolling in. This was in the middle of the day and it was a real hum dinger. The sky turned completely black and the rain topped off my new pond in my flower garden- about 2". Wish you could feel the wind blowing- we could barely stand and finally had to get inside as there was a fair amount of lightening and we are the only thing of any height out here on the prairie. We did have some electric worm it's way into our phone lines- hate it when that happens! I do go through those little phone line surge protectors- several each year. You don't have one? I have black scorch marks on my walls around the phone jacks. But those little surge protectors certainly do the job- discovered them the hard way after losing a modem in a summer storm. There was a little bit of hail, but nothing to worry about. Sounded nice on the tin roof.
