    Well we woke up some rain...great rain...BUT it also brought thunder/lightening/high winds..So now I have no power at home...I am sitting at walmart in McD's! Today was my day to can my peaches..sigh...and to SEW...my one day this week that I was free enough to do things at home...figures....

    It stopped raining, but looks like more is coming...we sure do need it...of course it will still be over 100 every day for the next 15 days they say...what a rough summer....and no produce to show for all my hard work...so winter will be harsh and long as well!

    Hope all my friends in TX, KS and OK are enjoying the cool weather and rain today!

    We were just on the very edge of that storm you got. I sure could do with some more of the wet stuff. I LOVE it when it rains. =)

    No rain here in the Houston area for many days and none forcasted. We have had record temps and are on water restrictions. I have lived here all my life and never remembering it be this hot. We are all praying for rain.

    My cousin lives just outside Corn, OK. Is that close to you? I sympathize w your weather and power outages. Seems she freq experiences power outages. I'd be so afraid of losing everything in the freezer. It must be rough on the wildlife , too.

    DH just sent me a picture of the temp in OKC, it's a cool 72. It is getting very windy and dark here and the temp has probably dropped 15 degrees in the last 20 minutes or so.

    I also live in OK and was more than excited about the rain and the first day of school for my 9th grade daughter (woo, hoo)! We are rural and have had power off/on for the last 3 days, but I will gladly take it with a little rain. Still praying for those of you not getting any rain.

    I have really enjoyed the rain, we have had rain the past few nights actually has some hail last night. It woke us up. My hubby will have to mow our "grass" now. It will be his third time to mow this spring/summer. Im sure he has enjoyed not having to mow out in the heat.

    The cool temp today has been wonderful. I live in SE OKC/Moore.

    Not a drop down here :cry: :cry: All around us to the north and east, just missed us,BUT we got the cooler temps too.So nice to be able to open the doors and windows
    We didn't have to turn on the air until 2 this afternnon..
    The weather patterns finally seem to be changing ,allowing cooler temps and rains to come in, now all they need to do is go a little bit to the south so we can have some too.

    We had a little rain early this morning and didn't reach 100 today! Looks like for the next week we will be under 100 and a good chance of rain.
