Round 4 hit like a sledge hammer. It was a nice reasonably cool day until the dark clouds began to crowd the sky. The wind picked up as the critters ran for cover. Turn up your sound to hear the gamble quail talking, telling each other to hold on tight as they gather in the midst of a big tree for cover from nighttime predators.
At this point, the storm was far away. It came in like gangbusters with lightning strikes that lit up my entire house every three seconds. Yup, they came so fast I began to count. It took about an hour and a half before heading off down the valley. Flash flood warnings came almost as fast as the lightning.
I rather imagine she didn't fare too well in last night's downpour, as gallons of water poured down the spout. Itsy bitsy spider crawled up the water spout. Down came the rain and ..... well you know the words to that one. A fairy tale come to life.
With two more days of big thunder storms headed our way, I think I better go find a big tarp and leave my truck down the driveway ... you know, just in case I need a fast getaway!!
