We made it home before the worse of the storm hit last night, but the lightening put on quite a show as we were driving home. I had gone to the city to get my car back. The repair was covered by warranty. I had a flex fuel car to drive while mine was being fixed. I wasn't to impressed with the gas mileage I got with it. It didn't get near the gas mileage that my car does.
We got over two inches of rain in a very short period of time. It looked like it was raining in sheets. I was home about a half hour before the worse of it hit.
I got a picture of the boys 1st day of school. I will have to scan it so that I can down load it to the computer. I am getting an education that is for sure. They are doing things that we never did as having separate teachers for P.E., Music, and their teacher. We always just had the one, but then that was a long time ago.
I was really thankful it wasn't to hot when we lost our electricity. We were luckier then some with only being off for a little over a hour. They sais that they had a equipment failure. I don't know what really happened. We haven't cooled down very good this evening yet. I know in some areas it was foggy this morning when I went to work. I have to pick my route so that I don't have a problem with school buses. If I get behind them, I will be late to work for sure.
Our day wasn't exactly as planned because of the rain. We couldn't get into a couple of job sites because it was to muddy. They were going to get a tractor and wagon to see if we could transfer the load to it. I would have loved to be a mouse and watched. I don't know where the month is going, but it is really flying fast. Before we know it, it will be Christmas. One of the blogs I was reading they are already doing a countdown to Christmas. I know Hobby Lobby starts putting out Christmas in July.
Well you all have a wonderful day.

Wow Shirley, sounds like quite a rain storm! We've had hardly any rain this summer, and we've had to put the sprinklers on every day to keep all the grass green and the flowers happy. I'm so happy fall is almost here! ... and you're right, before we know it, it will be Christmas! xo Paulette

Hi Shirley,
WOW sounds like you got the rain we did last week or so. It was more rain then I have ever seen here.
Hope your days are getting cooler. We are still very hot during the daytime. And, here I am in the studio working on nothing but Christmas creations. LOL

You are so right, the holidays will be here before we now it and Hobby Lobby has everything out for a couple months now. Can't be helped I suppose with so many creators in busy and such.

So glad all is well for you.
Thank you for stopping by my friend.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs and Blessings, Celestina Marie
