Default "Sweet Summer Rain" and thunder too!

We have had an extremely hot and dry summer here in the Portland area. Well right now we are having a huge lightning and thunder storm with wonderful rains all the way from the tropics. The raindrops are huge.

I'm playing songs by my favorite folk singer, Iris Dement.

I have all the windows open and am enjoying the wonderful spectacle and the warm breezes. I guess rain is a.o.k .once in a while. What a wonderful day!

Amazing that you've had a dry spell in Portland! Isn't it great to spend a lazy afternoon watching the rain... enjoy...

Cheers,

Raining with thunderstorms here in Montreal too, listening to Jimmy Buffet. Thanks to CMs recommendations, I've fallen in love with him.....

It's been raining here in N.E. Florida everyday for the last two months. I'm so sick of it I decided from now on when it rains I'm going to do what the Chinese do.

Let it rain!


Regards,
Thomas

Thomas we have had so much rain here too in south west Florida.....Yesterday we had a huge storm again with lots of rain! The rainy season is almost here but from the looks of it it never left! Too bad considering the darn snow birds will come back soon and then our streets, towns and beaches are so over crowded we have to stay at home.Plus it will add another 30 minutes of extra driving time for my husband...2 hrs then.............bummer

I think there is a dark cloud that forms over the entire state of Florida every afternoon... it's good for the grass since we've been dry this year, but I hate driving in it.

Cheers,

Dry as sin in California -- just had to go soak the dry spots in the lawn.

We love it when it rains -- enjoy Chuck
