Yesterday was a near-perfect 70 degree day. We were blythely performing our autumnal tasks in shirt sleeves. Last evening, a thunderstorm rolled in and ruthlessly drenched our town. Almost 4 inches in one hour! We don't get lots of rain in this high desert of the Texas Panhandle, so the storm created mucho misery for motorists who were stranded on Interstate 40. Businesses flooded, roofs leaked and all watery hell broke loose.
The night was ominous and thunder-y. Definitely a covers pulled tight over the head type of night. I told the Texan the air was reminiscent of a summer storm in the mountains. While we were TRYING to catch our required shut-eye, the sky snappily flashed, the wind rattled the rafters and the incessant booming rolled.
