|Interesting Weather We're Having|
September 5, 2015
Nougat and I were outside earlier this morning, just before 9 am (it was her post-breakfast romp time). I had my Kindle. The sun was out, there was a little breeze. There was only one cloud in the sky.....but it was enough for it to start to drizzle. Tiny, light drops.....barely there. Delightful.
Then the drops got a little steadier, but it was still just a gentle shower. We stayed outside. It started to shower a little heavier, and I opened my umbrella and closed my Kindle.
In a few moments, it began to rain in earnest, and I said to Nougat, "I think we'd better go in". By the time I'd said that, closed my umbrella, and stood up.....it had become a downpour!!
"RUN FOR IT, NOOGIE!!!!", I called, and dashed for the door (only a few feet from where I'd been sitting). By the time we got to the door, we were both drenched!
We got in the house, and as I shut the door, the downpour became a deluge, accompanied by thunder and lightning!
The storm lasted about a half hour, and then the sun came out again. Now it's overcast again. The weather forecast called for 'possible afternoon showers and thunderstorms'....nothing about morning ones. (guess they need a window)
The local news showed the radar.....of the entire state of FL, there was only one patch of rain.....directly over us!! Mom was glad, "Now I don't have to water".
She had a strange Mom-ism. She noted that the rain "was really coming down, and it's not going back up".
Uh, no.....I wouldn't expect it to.......not sure WHAT she meant.....I don't think she knew either!
