Post-It Note Tuesday

Last night while we were eating dinner, the sky got very dark, very quickly. We had planned on pulling weeds after we ate, and I think Thomas was a little bit happy with the thought of those plans being "washed out", lol! It got darker and darker, and then the thunder started. It didn't rain right away, but when it did....we got tons of hail too!!! It was coming down so hard and was quite large. Naturally, I grabbed my camera...


The hail melted very quickly, it had been 99*!!!, but it was so much cooler afterwards. The rain loosened the weeds in the back yard too, so we got 'em all up! I wish I had thought to take before/after photos because the difference is just amazing. Our next house has a solid cement slab, so no more icky weeds to pull!! YAY! Wish me luck today....I'm gonna need it!!

That certainly looks like a wicked storm! Glad it cooled things off and loosened those weeds.

Hope the packing goes smoothly and the things you are taking with you fits in the truck!

Good luck!

That was quite a hail storm! It's much easier to pull weeds when the ground is soft so maybe it was a good thing it rained. An omen, maybe? For things to go easier from now on?

I hope the move goes well. Good luck with everything you have to do. *hugs*
