Thank you NMLM. This didn't show up on radar when I looked 20 minutes ago. When I read this I went out to be sure I'd done something. It wasn't raining when I stepped off the porch. Two minutes later I was very wet.

We lost power as well, before the rain started, about an hour.

This was MUCH less of a storm than the one we got here in west Corinth on July 4. Our chicken coop blew away and was totaled (we estimate 30-40 mph gusts), my crops and seedlings were badly damaged by 20 min or so of serious hail, from pea to marble size, and we got over 2" of rain.

Market is going to be very sad for a while. When cleaning lettuce this morning I threw as much into the chicken food bucket as I put in the market pile. I'll have to shell the peas (which will begin being ready for market Saturday) to sell them as the pods look like they have the pox from being hit by hail -- though of course the peas inside are fine. Sugar snaps will be a lost cause, mostly (we will eat them but...)

I am crossing my fingers for enough tomato plants to come back fast enough for a late crop for us; not expecting any for market now. Beans should be ok, ditto carrots, beets, etc... for later.

I've been working in the garden this morning. No need to water now until next week thanks to the rain. It was mild here with a little thunder in the distance and steady rain off and on.

We caught an edge of it and the winds and rain were intense. Right before, my dog needed to go out so I told him to "hurry up!" about it. Just as he decided to get going, bright light that seemed right in front of my eyes and huge thunderous boom right after.

Guess what dog, you're holding it.

The rain poured...like I saw in Houston...poured.

After it seemed to calm down, went out with the dog again to give it another go. As soon as he got in to position, repeat of the first paragraph. You have got to be kidding me. Ran for indoors again.

I waited until I was certain it was past, even looked at the radar...ok, no dark red, we should be good.

Went out again...lol, ok, is this a joke? Repeat of the first paragraph.

Forget it, dog. You're going in the house. (Just kidding, our 4th attempt was uneventful.)
