    Yesterday afternoon the weather guy said we would have to suffer without rain for yet another 90+, miserable, humid day. Radar was showing absolutely nothing. I went to my deck door and it was looking pretty cloudy so I decided to go ahead and vacuum my deck carpet. A few minutes later we were having air-to-ground lightening strikes and instant thunder. I went back to my bedroom ... and the sky was blue and there was a little sun.

    All of a sudden it was raining like hell.

    At 11:00 the weather guy said, "We had no warning whatsoever from the National Weather Service!"

    At 6:00 this morning we heard about all the damage and power outages down in Knoxville. Now it looks like we're being set up for some more rain ... as earlier predicted. I can live with a little rain for a change. Some of my flowers have dropped dead from the daytime heat even though they get soaked every evening.

    What a great job it must be to be a weatherman (excuse me, Meterologist).

    You never have to be right about anything.

    In my part of Arizona we have had rain for 9 of the past 12 days with temps in the mid 70's.

    Come on up zona, we would even welcome you in the White Mountains......:razz:

    That is one of the great things about Arizona.
    So take a break, come on up and enjoy some cool weather and rain.
