Yesterday afternoon, the weather was so strange. We could hear thunder in the distance and I looked up and it was pouring rain on the left side of our front yard and not raining a drop on the right side. That went on for probably 10 minutes – big, huge drops with the wind blowing it sideways, just on the left side of the yard. After a few minutes, it began to rain all across the front but the left side remained heavy, with the right side just getting a drizzle. The rain gauge is on the right side of the yard and I think it showed .32″ of ain. I’m betting the left side of the yard got at least double that.
I couldn’t get a good picture of the rain but the trees look like they got the dust rinsed off them.
Then about 9 p.m., we could hear thunder again. We hurried up and took our showers because if the power goes out, we have no water. Then I decided I’d better go out and check for scorpions in case the weather stayed bad and I didn’t go out again.
I use a blacklight flashlight and that makes them glow.
I almost feel bad for them. No hiding from a black light!
That’s about as exciting as it gets around here . . going out scorpion hunting on hot nights.
