More Crazy Weather

Post  Mtman1849 on 4/9/2011, 9:36 am

Ok it was supposed to be 70degs today with and east wind and a 30pecent chance of rain I went to bed with all the window up listening to the frogs and woke up to the clouds and I know it ain't all that cold but it feels it compared to yesterday, I sure hope that it improves enough that I can get some of the things I had planned for today done.

I feel your pain. We got caught with part of that storm last night, I think your a bit south so it may not have affected you too much. Just cloudy out now. On the bright side, one of my lettuce seeds finally started sprouting.

That storm scooted right around our mountain thank goodness! Considering how bad a time we had with the last storms it is about time we catch a break. Geez! Mad

Woke up @ 1 am with ferocious winds and hail pelting the house - but just little pea-sized stuff so no damage. Glad I got out and built the boxes when I did because we are now supposed to have rain for the rest of the week!

I'm glad that everyone who has gone through these current storms is okay, and thanks for sharing your experience.

BYBG and I are trying to keep those in the Midwest and Lower South updated on the weather. What's on the maps now looks pretty mild compared to what is expected later on today and tomorrow, I said looks, there was already on tornado that hit a small town in Iowa pretty hard. Please keep an eye on your local weather forcasts and check out your favorite online weather place. To quote Betty Davis in All About Eve, "Fasten your seatbelts it's going to be a bumpy ride".

Shredded garden. Sad Sad

Not destroyed but lots of damage everywhere. HUGE holes punched through the large Broccoli leaves. Looks like someone took scissors to the lettuce (glad I harvested a bunch yesterday).

Oh well, mother nature...I'm thankful because there is a lot worse out there...Tornado direct hit, Japan etc etc. So I'm good Very Happy
