Has anyone else been plagued with all the rain this summer? It seems to have rained more than I can ever remember! It clears up fast and gets hot (humid!) again quickly - but still! Enough already!


Our last night in the mountains it began raining as soon as we got in our tent and continued until about 11:00 AM (which meant I had to take the tent down in the rain and set it back up again when I got home so it could dry out.) Setting it up the second time went much smoother without the aid of a 3 year old...


Well -I decided to leave it up all day Monday to give it a good airing. And then yesterday I thought.... "better take that tent down Lora...it could rain..." And no sooner had the thought crossed my mind and the thunder rumbled and it poured. I mean POURED!


So this morning I look out the window and the sun is shining (yay) but the tent had collapsed in the night! (I guess maybe I should've let grandbaby help me set it up the second time too!)


So now I must set the darn thing up yet a third time and let it air out. Gheesh!


On a more positive note - I got all my water in yesterday!

Good Morning, We are still short on rain in Alabama but it seems that when we do get a good rain. Lighting and very strong winds come with it.

Thanks for paying me a visit. I have updated Day 7 with pictures.

Have a great day of no fast food and lots of water. JC
