We've certainy been having some wacky weather here lately. Last Wednesday we had hurricane force winds. Thursday was a beautiful day - much like spring. Friday morning at 3am, it started to snow and didn't quit until about 9pm that evening. We dug ourselves out Saturday and spent the day resting from our efforts. Sunday and Monday were both sunny and beautiful.
I didn't get to sleep until about 2am this morning and then was awakened by a noise. At first I couldn't figure out what was going on. Then I realized it was rain pounding on the roof. And it was pounding. Lightning flashed across the sky. Thunder rolled. I couldn't believe what I was seeing and hearing. There was a thick fog that had settled over the land and I could only see about a block in the distance.
The thunder and lightning quit sometime after I had drifted back to sleep. When I got up this morning, it was still raining and continued to rain until just after noon. The fog had lifted but the day was overcast and gray and it still is.
Makes me wonder what we are in store for next. No one can predict what wacky weather is just over the horizon.
