|Inside a rotten lemon|
Last night just the three of us, Becky, the boss, and I, were home, enjoying a quiet supper. Home grown beef and stuff from the garden makes it all good.
Then the kids called from up west where they had attended a wedding and said, "Batten down the hatches; it's hailing here and power lines are lying right in the road."
When we came inside the sun was shining and all was calm and peaceful. We abandoned our plates and hustled outside to find the darndest sky we had ever seen. It was like being inside a lemon.
A rotten lemon.

We barely had time to snatch the curing onions off the wagon, cardboard box them into the dining room, and drag the laundry upstairs, shutting windows all the way, before it hit.
Wham! I don't think we got much damage, but the winds were wild and the rain torrential...
I spent nearly the whole storm, after the hatches were suitably battened, running around taking pictures of the crazy clouds. The colors were insane....colors none of us had ever seen in the sky before.
|Eerie clouds just the color of cotton candy...the blue kind!|
Pretty awesome in fact.
It stormed off and on all night, with wild lightning waking us more than once.
Hope by now everyone up around Fort Plain has their power back on. They are predicting a replay for tonight.
I find it interesting that I read just this week that the weather is going to get really, really bad by 2050 or 2060. Since this storm started out by being predicted to be a 20% chance of scattered showers it kinda makes me wonder.....just sayin'
