There was a warning over TV that there was a warning for such & such counties at 1:45p and sure enough the sky got darker and darker and was almost black by that time! How do they know exactly??
Thunder and lightning started.... then there was a warning in my phone~~ for flash flooding, had never had THAT before. Warning to get into your 'safe place' there was a flurry of text back and forth between Carol and I as she had to leave for awhile, i was here alone. then texts from daughter Darah. The 'safe place' is in the bathroom!!!! Well i did NOT go sit in the bathroom and miss the show, sat right on the couch with Luci pressed against my side, she was not going anywhere!! And we watched out the big windows.....
Then the rain started WOW have never quite seen rain like that before, look at this roof run-off, more water than i have seen in some of the creeks back here!!! Bet they are the ones that flash flooded!!
Visibility was way down. It was an isolated little world of sounds and rain pouring all around. It was quite interesting, oh did i mention the sirens??? And someone on a loudspeaker, which i could not quite hear what he was saying, sure it was probably something i should know, but..... Sirens went off 4 times and would stay on for along time.... It was all quite exciting for someone from the NorthWest :) It only lasted a couple hours, but seemed to go on forever. Still humid after, but this morning, it is really nice out there, hardly humid at all. All kind of washed down and clean!!!! With a little crispy in the air.
Went to the Saturday Market that morning and almost expired down there, It is held in a parking lot by the Mississippi and the heat just radiates off that pavement, everyone was sweating to beat the band, bet it is nice down there on this Sunday morning!!!!
Take Care & God Bless All
