What glorious weather we are having… We have been having thunder and lightening for about 6 hours now with sporatic rain showers. Very unusual weather for us!! Really kind of fun ! Out of nowwhere, while we were bar-b-queing dinner, there appeared the most beautiful rainbow right out our back porch. It mad a perfect semi-circle and appeared to stretch from the ocean across the golf course in front of us and then behind some rolling hills… Rainbows are another thing that we don’t experience too often here.
It was the first rainfall since early May, which for us is a pretty short gap. We can go almost a year sometimes, between drops, and years between thunder storms!
I just heard from my friend Andrea (at Mood Space) that she and her family are evacuating Corpus Christi … and on her birth day no less. We are praying for them and all of you who are in the path of Rita!!
