We were not expecting this storm, but I don't think any of us regret it. We had straight line winds over 50 mph, trees down, power outage and of course, rain! My pics didn't pick up the rain very well, nor the tree that fell across the street knocking out power. I stood on the porch trying to get shots, but high wind and lightning reminded me how powerful they are. I gave they both due respect! LOL.
I tried to capture the fallen tree just beyond the last tree on the top right of the pic, but missed the shot. The power line came down with the tree. We were withont power for a little while, because the fire and police departments are up the hill from us, and so is city hall! That's a lux I inherited for moving to this new address.
After the excitement of getting that rain, I finished putting away my peppers that were given to me. I put away 10 bags, and expect to get this many tomorrow...a promise made from our cheerful giver! I can always snag a bargain, huh?
Not only did I finish all of this, I managed to cook a light meal of chicken, green beans with bacon, rosemary new-potatoes, rice with mushroom gravy and pear salad.
Until then...Keep smiling and please know, you will always have a friend ... At Home with Loretta!
