In our defense we are in the midst of a serious drought and summer rain is an oddity for most of the region. Especially accompanied with lightening and thunder.
And I am not exaggerating when I say it hit within seconds of the dismissal bell ringing. The kids walked out and the skies opened up. Followed seconds later by a bolt of lightening directly over the school (okay maybe it just seemed that way).
J and I walked home the whopping 2 blocks. Can you tell how miserable he was about it?
Most people felt pretty much the same way from the laughter I heard leaving the school. And the best part was the temperature drop of about 20 degrees. A welcome relief after a week of 100+ degree temperatures.
This morning I surveyed the damage to the yard.
|Storage shed door blew off|
|Lawn furniture and mats blown all over the place.|
It took me all of 10 minutes to tidy up.
We fared a little better with Hurricane Odile than Baja California did. Hope our neighbors to the south recover soon.
