There was the possibility of storms predicted for Friday night. It was a hot and humid 96 degrees. The baseball game started at 6:00...at 6:30 the pitcher was nearly blown off the mound with the strong winds that passed through. The pressure dropped so fast that Billy got a nose bleed. After the initial winds things calmed down and they continued the game. At about 7:30 the wall of clouds was looming. Thunder, lightening, and a 25 degree temperature drop...game over after 5 innings and a 3 to 3 tie.
I took this picture when we got back home. I liked how the flowers were red, white and blue for the 4th of July.
A quick snap shot of a daisy and red yarrow on my way out the door to golf.
It had been another warm day, getting steamier as the day went on. I didn't realize that storms were predicted before I left for golf. It was looking a little dark when I got to the golf course. My golfing partners decided that driving carts would be a good idea...and they sure were. On our 2nd hole the thunder started to rumble, the lightening looked close, the rain was coming down, and then the siren went off at the clubhouse. We were pretty far from the clubhouse, but having a covered cart made the trip to safety pretty quick. 20 minutes later the storm had passed.
The sun came out and brought a rainbow with it. It was double for a while, faintly triple at one point. And with the sun and rain came the steam...it was a sticky one. And not a very good round for me. But sometimes you just have to think about being with friends and being outside and the whole golf thing just doesn't matter. I will say that golf is a lot more fun when you're playing better.
Long weekend, summer days, working from home, it all makes me forget what day it is most of the time. There is a lot going on here. Billy had a game last night and it sure felt nice to get out of the house. Only two more games and maybe a tournament...and then summer baseball is done. It feels like we just got started.
I talked with a dear friend yesterday, she's going through a tough time right now. I was so glad that she called, so glad that we could talk and even laugh in spite of the situation that she is in. Life can sure toss you some curve balls now and again.
