July rain storm

First it started as thunder and lightening,

Then the rain mixed with some hail.

The thunder was so loud, it rattled the house. Austin and I jumped  out of our skins!We both let out a little scream, than the laughter followed.

This old house starting leaking. Now we have ice cream pails, my milk pail and bowls every where catching the rain water. 

We were very quick at shutting down the Wii and the computer.

Austin was worried that the power would go out like last night. Although she thought is was fun to bathe by candlelight. She was already in the tub when the power went out. But we did manage to get her hair washed prior to the power outage. 

Now the sun is shining. The thunder storm has moved off in a east south-east direction. That is our second rain storm this month. But just an hour after it has stopped all these puddles in the above photos are no longer there. The ground was that dry, it absorbed it all. This moisture will benefit the pastures, the grain farmers-although the moisture might be to late, the crops have been burning up in the heat-and it has thoroughly screwed up the haying for a couple of days. Oh well, such is the life of a farmer.

    I like the slide into the pool. :-)

  2. Austin did that! That is what chased her Papa out of the 'pool' the day before. kids are funny!
