And the heavens opened with a flash of lightening, a peal of thunder, and torrents of rain and hail. Thus began the day yesterday! Of course, all our cars were parked outside when the pelting began. It did not sound good ... but no real damage resulted ... just a few leafless trees stood nextdoor that moments earlier had on their finery of new growth. Last night a gentle rain soothed the household into lulaby land ... the rythmic rain against the windowpanes and lack of morning sunshine have kept most of the youngins asleep way beyond their normal time to wake up. Guess I best be getting out my pots and pans to fix some vittles for breakfast ... that will surely git them thare kids up! Have a good day.
