Well, the rain continues and so do the tornado warnings and watches and flash flood warnings. Tuesday night I went to bed early, but Dave stayed up to make sure the storm was going to miss us. He heard a loud noise and yesterday we found out what it was.
Lightning had hit one of the trees in the cemetery just across the street.
Large pieces of bark was just peeled off the tree and tossed on the ground.
Sure glad no one was hurt and it didn’t hit in our yard or the neighbors’ yards.
It’s been a wild time this past week with so many people with flooded basements and houses. The television station usually announces when roads are closed. Yesterday morning the news anchor said to check out the website – too many to mention. Areas are flooded that haven’t flooded in many, many years. We are so fortunate. I feel sorry for those who are having to fight the water in their homes. Enough is enough. Hope it ends soon.
But on the positive side, everything is growing and blooming. There was a break in the rain so I was able to pick some asparagus and take some shots of more blooming irises.
This last one is similar to another one we have here only this one has curly edges.
Sun is out this morning. Hopefully the rain is passed. So sad to hear about Alabama. I need to check on my sis who lives down there.
