rainy days and mondays lately get me high

Not sure if anyone saw my post on Friday where I wished for rain but this video proves that sometimes wishes do come true. Sooner than you'd think.

More rain, lots more, is on the way. Downpour style. Shear markers, the weather dude is saying, plus pea-sized hail, gusty winds, thunder and lightning. Wooo hoooo! Bring it on, sweet mother of nature.

And by the way, don't you just love technology? The kind that brings you weather radar? Where you can zoom in to see if the doppler is picking up rain on your very own street? Cloud coverage and lightning have been added to our local station's radar. Cool to be alive and connected in this day and age, isn't it?

Speaking of technology, I need to log off and shut down. Lightning over head. Rainy days and Mondays are sometimes a very good thing.

p.s. Did anyone see the special treat for Debbie at the tail end of this video?

Today's Writing Prompt: Cold

Many people in the U.S. have been experiencing a heat wave. Describe something cold.


That soothing shudder of relief felt at the bottom of the ocean on a hot summer day.
Warm at my waist, cool at my feet.
One step in the right spot and my body sighs.
A welcome escape from the Texas heat.
