for over two hours now. For awhile it did come down pretty but it did ease off. It wasn't very warm today and since it started raining the temperature really dropped. I was just sitting here and I kept seeing this light. I kept watching and nothing happened. I would look away and there it was again. Finally, I caught it. It is lightning over the Mesa and it isn't very bright. It looks like it is mainly on the other side of the mountain. Now the thunder is rolling in. So far it isn't the loud roaring thunder, just mellow as easy on the ears. I have been smelling rain for a few days but figured it would pass us by but it didn't. We did need some rain so it is a blessing. The lights have been flickering so I have the candles and flashlights ready.

I am doing pretty good. I am trying to keep as busy as I can. Active too as they want me to do all kinds of exercises so I can get better. How are you doing?

After Irma coming through for three days I crave sunshine and dry days. I hope you get what you need there.

We got quite a bit last night and it started up again awhile ago. The rain needs to go where the fires are.

Hope there won't be any power outage. It pays to be ready though.

I hope so too but I am prepared in case that does happen. We can never predict Mother Nature.

@toniganzon Very true. It is pretty chilly here tonight. I did get my heavier clothes out the other day so I can always change into something warmer if I have to.

Funny isn't it, while your place seems to not having enough rain, the opposite happens to Florida.

I usually like rainy days but I would rather see it rain where the fires are.

@kobesbuddy Me too. It is pretty chilly right now and heavy dark clouds above. Oh well, not much we can do about it if it wants to storm.
