    Yowser! I'll bet she is busy in this heat wave. If I lived in that area it would be underground.

    I'm thinking the heavy rain will stay southeast of us, this round.

    Boats ready.

    We may break a record here today. Thank goodness we get the cooling effect of nearby Puget Sound. Ironically, Ft. Worth set a record low this morning of 62::F. We were 64F this AM.

    Family in Wichita Falls, Tx North of Ft. Worth say the city is having to draw up Phase 4 drought regs because they have never been past Phase 3 before. They are now.

    So far not a drop here, that will change. They say it might stop by the end of the week.

    That's a shallow lake. Guess it doesn't look good for boating season there.

    it's been raining like mad here, too. We've gotten a couple inches the past 24 hours, supposed to be pop-up storms and training storms all week long, right thru the weekend!

    Lots of it is a lot deeper. With a dam and spillway. That aren't of much use now.

    There were 2 different tornado watches here between 2:30 and 4:15 pm today in our county. One cell had a rotation starting to form so it was a close call just south of us. Tense moments for a bit here. Tropical downpours too. Doppler radar is the best thing since sliced bread.

    Lawn looks great on the plus side. Wood seasoning is just not happening that rapidly.
