    Default The wind.....

    It is a blowing!!! Woke up to thunder shortly after 0500 (I HATE THUNDER!!) that lasted about an hour. It was pouring rain the entire time and had been since I went to bed last night. We seriously need the rain!

    Windstorm has been going on since, luckily :knock on wood: we have not lost our power, but several friends have. I hope it's not windy like tis over in the wildfires because that is just what they don't need!!

    The rain stopped a while ago, but the wind is still gusting.....going to hate to see the condition of my tomatoes when this is all over.
    pat.

    No rain....no rainbows!

    Hoping the wind doesn't whip the fires, that the rain gets there and helps put them out. Weather is a strange thing.

    Hope your tomatoes survived, too.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    Wind is going nuts here too. We had rain for awhile last night then stopped but sounds like its dumping on at least one of the fires. The Newhalem fire. Power is out everywhere so we have the generator running. Feels like a normal fall storm but really early. As long as it brings rain I am good with it.
    Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.

    The rain hasn't made it to eastern WA yet. It is another smoky day. The municipal pool is closed and all the University's outside activities are either canceled or moved indoors. The musical entertainment was canceled at out wonderful farmer's market and they closed early. Our air quality was listed as "hazardous" this morning but we have been upgraded to "very unhealthy". I hope that some rain makes it to the wild fires! They said that they need a minimum of 0.10 to make a difference.

    Many thanks to all men and women from near and far who are fighting these fires!

    They said on the news last night we were going to get between 1" to 3" and I'm sure we did! I wish it would move east where it is needed.

    we were supposed to get that too but it seems to have just skimmed over us. Lots of wind power outages everywhere they have no idea when we will be back. Drove to town to get pizza as our generator is not big enough to run the oven. And there are trees and branches down everywhere. With the drought the trees are just toppling over and branches are seriously weak.
    Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.

    I am not venturing outside. Yoda doesn't even want to! MM checked on the tomato plants and said they were fine....or appeared to be from his vantage point on the deck!!

    The weather systems have blown Washington fires' smoke right up into Saskatchewan. It's quite smoky around here. I sure hope it hasn't impacted the fire fighting!

    We've had some serious forest fires around here in the past. Praying you get the rain you all need to knock those fires down...
    And praying we get some too, since we are parched down here..
    May the road rise up to meet you...
    May the wind be always at your back...
    May you be in Heaven a half hour before the Devil knows you're dead...
