Terry jumped out of bed about 5:30 because he thought he heard thunder. Turns out, he was right. According to the radar, storms were between here and Hwy 12, and we could be on the edge of it.  I followed him outside. Last night he had brought 2 big trailers filled with square bales to the yard, and he proceeded to move 8-packs of bales to the big shed.
 The clouds were interesting to the north.

To the east, shades of pink were seen.
 Before long, this is what came our way. We got .36" in a short time. We had some wind, but not a lot, and we didn't get any hail. I've heard that Twin Brooks had hail, but that's all I've heard.

Since it rained, I sat down to do some bookwork. The sun came out later, making it warm and humid. Again. This afternoon I washed most of the house windows on the outside. This evening I pulled the trailers around the field while Terry loaded round bales. 

There have been wasps flying around the house. That isn't terribly unusual, because their nests are usually under the eaves on the old shop or the white grainery. There's a large metal star with flaking paint hanging on the south side of the house. It's time for a new paint job. BUT THE WASPS HAVE THEIR NEST BEHIND IT! Gonna have to spray back there before I even think about taking it down.

And that's all she wrote. Nighty-night.   K&T
