Doris, hear your area is being hit hard by a tropical storm and is expecting a lot of rain...hope the roof doesn't leak....stay dry.

mykneesareback 09-19-2013 07:06 PM

Thanks Mary, we are dry inside, but it was the loudest thunder we ever heard in our whole lives, lol, and the lightning went sideways and every which way for awhile. The pouring rain lasted about 40 min., and now it's almost done. dh was upset because he just was watching "Argo" on HBO, and the satellite went off for a spell, just when the heavy rain cell goes overhead.
We must train ourselves to get used to this. :laugh:

Hope you have a good night and get a good nights sleep!
