I'm sitting her listening to the crash of thunder & lightening and watching the rain pound my flowers to the ground. We've got a Severe Weather Alert going on along with Flash Flood Warnings! This is the 2nd super thunderstorm we've had in a week. The one last week dropped 9 inches of rain in 2 hours! That's unheard of in Idaho. We've had drought conditions all summer with highs in the 90's most of June, July, and August. This is totally unreal for September.
I am ready for any emergency. Fortunately I live on top of a hill so I don't have to worry about the basement flooding. I've got new batteries in my lantern and the Nook & phone are fully charged. If the power goes out I can always go out to the RV to cook dinner.
