On the 4th of June, I got a call from my SCSis. Are you sitting? It was the first time in 4 weeks I'd talked to her. Yeah...I said FOUR WEEKS. We talked about 10-15 minutes. Up until her call, we'd had skies like pictured above. Next thing I know...the sky went a ~lovely~ shade of steel grey. Then the thunder could be heard. I told her I loved her but damn I was gonna simply have to go and right now. I had not even gotten the phone into it's cradle when it started pouring...dumping buckets of water everywhere. It didnt even have the courtesy to sprinkle first. In the first one, I shot that from the bedroom. The townhouse I mentioned in the previous entry is the one you see and I think you can see the tree the "Charlie" was in. The wood there is the sash of the window...sorry. I was trying to get a shot of the sidewalk so you could see how narrow it was but I didnt want to go into the lower part of the frame due to the screen. The second one is thru the sliding glass door. You get a real good shot of the damn bamboo we're fighting (you can see it poking up over the fence from the neighbor's side as well...their yard is pretty much being over taken by it). The yard's since been mowed. All the rain lately has made it hard to keep up with it at times. Oh...and this storm was a bit milder than the ones that had been hitting...definitely milder than the ones that hit us on the 10th or so and then headed up north to mess with Pennsylvania. That particular storm (the one on the 10th) had a couple of flashes of lightning (complete with a bright bolt) and thunder at the same time that I knew the bolt was closer than I'd care to have.
As you can see...Katy wasnt fond of them either!!
