The rain got so close to us that we could smell it but it passed us by.
I was out in the garden watering a few things that really needed to be watered . . just in case it didn’t rain.
I could hear the thunder and the guys on the radio say “If you can hear the thunder, you’re close enough to be struck by lightning!” so I left the garden.
Then I noticed Mr. and Mrs. Vulture still sitting atop the pole. They weren’t worried about the lightning, but they probably don’t listen to Brian and Leland on the radio in the mornings either so they don’t know that they’re close enough to be struck by lightning when they can hear the thunder. I wish they would get struck . . all the vultures in Brown County . . struck by lightning. That would be cause for celebration . . till all the deer and turkey carcasses ended up on the side of the road with nothing to eat them I suppose.
I figured my luck . . I’d better get in the house because if anyone was going to get struck by lightning . . it would be me!
The storm clouds just kept rolling past us but there’s rain in the forecast today and tomorrow so my fingers are crossed that we’ll get a little bit of rain around here.
