It seems inappropriate to complain about our wet summer when so many places all over the country are suffering from drought. Yesterday's storms added another .87" of rain in three separate downpours. The one pictured in the previous post lasted only 20 minutes but was scary. When the wind comes up so fast and it gets that dark in the daytime, it sends us listening for the tornado sirens. Luckily its bark was worse than its bite this time.
This is what the garden looked like 20 minutes later. Sun was back out but it was still raining a bit. Only one large branch down and it landed on a path.
