Dear Friends,

We are having our first gully washer of the year.  Really needed rain, but all at once??  Oh my...

Bees were able to get out and poo during a break in the weather today, now we have thunder storms, unusual for us.  Let's hope that all the Summer wildland fire areas don't start slipping and sliding!

Oh Sharon, my thoughts are right there with you, I hope that the earth holds firm.  Remember though, even though so much of the above ground timbers, grasses, plants and everything may have perished, but deep down in the earth is the remains of all these flora.  The roots may be alive beneath the soil, to grow again, some may be dead, depending on what went on below the ground level.  These things will help somewhat to hold the earth in place.

You said your bees got out to go poo today between the weather.  This makes me wonder if you know this.  But did you know that bees can go a very long time without defecating, like months?  You probably do, but it just sounded like kind of a weird thing to say. You know me, I speak some very strange things, love you, girl!!!  Have that most wonderful and awesome life, day, health, attract and keep that great health.  Cindi

Hey Cindi,

The part of me that is a nurse doesn't like to think of anything holding it's poo for more than one day!  So I am always relieved, when they are!

Now, going to sit and listen to the rain on the roof~*~*~

Irwin, I love that sound too, very soothing specially when you are with the animals listening to their rythmic chewing, no other pesky people around. You can feel your blood pressure & heartrate going down. J

I gotta ask- why do people live in areas where you go from one natural disaster to another with such frequency? Wild fires, mud slides followed by an earthquake at any time. In my area, maybe a hurrican once every few years and it is very unikely to affect me where i live...

hope all is well!
I love the rain as well. love those "southern style" porches that you can laze under when its showering out.

I am unaware of any earthquakes recently and those we have had over the years are usually not even noticed but by pets. As for snow and ice, it happens, but it doesnt last for days or weeks and it can often just be avoided by staying in for a day or so. Yes you were near me for flooding, but those people should move. They get flooded all the time near Trenton from the delaware river when snow melts or hurricanes cruise through, not where I am. Occassionally get a wet basement from lots of rain from hurricanes, but nothing like what many people live with. I feel bad frankly and know I am blessed w/ relative safety. rarely have twisters, or any natural distaters thankfully. Trees get blown down often when strong winds invade as well.
I just couldnt imagine having to annually deal with these issues. year after year, after year. Was just wondering is all- why not move. Or is the entire region at risk annually?

i don't know.  guess you have to live somewhere.  the gulf coast is beautiful.  maybe it's worth the occasional hurricane.  california is beautiful.  if you farm, you have to live in farm country.  iowa got hit hard last year with tornados and flooding.  grain ankle deep on the ground from the silos....  if yellowstone goes, it will take out half the country.  i live in volcano country.  i don't think any place is safe.  SH...so you might as well enjoy while you can.

I feel very lucky also..no tornado's or hurricanes, no droughts, seldom floods (I wouldn't live in the valley) seldom freezes for more than a week, this year the snow was bad, most times we don't get more than a few inches for a few days...seldom bad ice storms.  Occasional earthquakes & someday Mt. Rainier is gonna blow, probably won't actually blow, most likely will collapse cause of the way it's made but the lahars will suck...Rather deal with "some day" than the same disasters year in & year out...sometimes more than once a year! It is also so beautiful here albeit wet!  I usually don't have to water the lawn or my established plantings more than 1-2x a summer.  Not humid like back east & the bugs are "bug" sized, not able to carry off small children..no poisonous snakes on this side of Mt's.. Also, can't get really lost, the Olympics & Sound on one side, Cascades on the other so you always know which direction you are going depending on if you hit salt water (W), Mt's (E),  Mounties (N) or Columbia River & Kathy (S)! grin  J

54 years I lived in tornado country and have never seen one. Except once on a clear day I saw something come out of a small cloud, touch the ground for a couple of seconds and then it was gone. I think now days they call it a land spout or something. Just weird it happened on such a calm clear day with very few small clouds.

Then of course  there was May 11, 1970. One went over the house and landed a few blocks away and destroyed Lubbock. I didn't see it but my ears felt the change in pressure.

But there have been very few tornado warnings the past few years. I think the "tornado alley" has moved. And it has been proven a couple of times in the past year or two that anyplace can have tornadoes.
