Rain and 105 degrees

Where else besides North Texas can you be sitting in your blissfully air conditioned bedroom at three o'clock on a Saturday afternoon, enjoying the perfect sunny light coming through your beautiful 7 foot windows, and be suddenly distrubed by a loud "rat-a-tat-tat" sound?

Is it the hubby watching something weird on TV? Are the dogs running over the wood floors?

No, it's ONE HUNDRED AND FIVE degrees outside, sunny as all get out, and POURING RAIN.

Run out, gather up the chickens, lock them in the coop, and sit in said bedroom in complete disbelief as we get a much needed downpour concurrently with lovely bright Texas sunshine. Have I just been gone too long to remember freakish Texas weather? Apparently so...

It does the same thing in Ga. We have a saying that the devil is beating his wife when that happens. It used to scare me when I was little :0

Glad to see you back :)

I gave 50 Acres to Grandma today when I went down for Peggy's Dad's funeral. She's very excited. She also gave me Mama Smurf's wedding band for you to have SOMEDAY when I'm through wearing it. It's a beautiful gold band with orange blossoms on it in an open weave.

Next time that happens, stay inside where it's cool, those chickens will go in on their own, and sometimes they actually enjoy a shower, esp. on a hot day! lol
