Yesterday was an almost perfect autumns day, at 24 degrees Celcuis. Today, it was wild, wet & cold. This could be the first of our rains. It would be wonderful if it rained for hours, for many weeks. This would break our drought. The wind is nearly gale force. I have heard a number of sirens so I guess there are road accidents due to unsafe driving conditions. The dogs dont like this weather & are curled up in their beds. The cats are inside. What is your Weather Like Today?

I am so pleased that you have gotten a little rain. I hope it continues. Fall, for you? Spring here. I drove out in fog this morning, and watched the sun in the northeast come out from behind a dark roll of clouds. By the time I got to work, it was brilliant. But I also drove through fog on the way, and drizzle. I had to scrape frost from my windshield before leaving. The temperatures were a bit chilly, 50 degrees F. or less. We had our first Special Olympics track meet this evening and it was downright nippy. I am thankful to be able to see the seasons change.

Yes, it is autumn. We didn't end up with a lot of rain, but it is very windy. Lots of car accidents. The forecast tonight is for hail & storms. Is the Special Olympics those athletes are are going to Beijing, or are trying to get into the team?

Special Olympics is competition between adults with various handicaps. I do not know if any of them ever get to go to World Olympics with more common athletes. These are people who compete against others with similar disabilities. It is for fun and sportsmanship.

Oh, poor cats, they want to be outside in good weather. One of our cats lives inside in the bad weather, the other cat comes & goes.

It must be very humid then if you are having thunderstorms in this heat. We have just had a couple of hail storms & lost pour power briefly.

Partly Sunny Today - After four days of rain day and night, so glad to see the sun again!
After four days and nights of rain rain rain, it's partly sunny today!! Finally the sun shows itself!! We're having a drought too but it's not as bad as it once was. I don't mind the rain but hate it when it lasts for days like this.

Although we would love rain, rain, rain, if it comes in such downpours it can cause more damage than good with flooding.

Oh JennyB, my friend, it's absolutely gorgeous here in Southern California. It's about 70 degrees F with a slight breeze, blue skies and our garden is growing like crazy. The birds are singing and I could go on but I won't. It's a beautiful Spring we have here. And though I know you guys need the rain, I pray for saver conditions.

WE had pretty much the same weather, Monday was summer here in Scotland, lasted practically the whole day, rain started abour 10pm. (thats several hours more than we had last year). Tuesday was very heavy rain all day, which is a typical day for Scotland's west coast.

Well hopefully this is the start or a decent rainy season to help aid the plants and wildlife etc affected by your drought of late. Mid to high 30s. Just above freezing is all. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I thought I had already replied to this, but I am finding a lot of my discussions lately where my replies have disappeared. We have had some rain lately, but no where near a drought breaking amount yet.
