Do you see what I see?
Look at those shingles flopped around on that garage roof!
Makes me wonder why we have sooo much trouble with the roofs here. They are either using cheap materials or don't know how to attach shingles properly or something. Jeez!
Weather permitting, the road crew is still adding layers of tar on that connecting road and have leveled off our old road. When you turned in off the main road in front of the buildings there has always been a huge dip and bump on our side road that is all gone and tarred over now. So, that's a plus, I guess. :)
92 degrees yesterday afternoon, so humid you could cut the air with a knife, and Karma was lying on the glass and metal table. Sillyhead!
The sky was gorgeous earlier...
...with more of the blue skies and white fluffy clouds.
Around the time for the fireworks...a lightning storm rolled in. Constant lightning lit up the sky! Sometimes I wasn't sure what was thunder and what was fireworks. The sirens went off three separate times. Karma and I were in the bathroom again waiting out the storm. I never thought to make a video, but Dagan and Leah did! Sounds like their neighbors were out on their decks, too, watching the display. I saw the same thing from up here--fireworks, lightning storm, thunder, and sirens going off all at the same time. Weird!!
It absolutely poured for a while here. Leah told me there was hail in places, too. I haven't watched the news this morning to hear whether there were any touch downs or damages. We almost lost power here...went off and on a couple of times. It went from 92 (or more--that was just last I had checked earlier) down to 70! We're still supposed to be in the 80s and it was 70% humidity this morning.
The storm was downright beautiful, though. :)
I'm washing clothes and puttering about today. Having the storm keep me up pushed me back on days, I think. We're back to blue skies and white clouds this fine morning. :):)
Hope all the US folks enjoyed the nice long weekend. I can hardly believe it is July already and half the year has flown by. Wow! Happy Tuesday! :)

That was some pretty wild patience we had last night, Ralph! LOL!
