Weather Report for May 21st

Well, I've got the wood stove going again (and yes, I did start the fire)! (Good thing it runs like a champ whereas the central heating system needs some serious servicing).. It is now 44 degrees, and it's 7pm. Stew is on the stove, and dinner is waiting for my husband who is out irrigating.

Crazy weather. After near 90 degrees over the weekend, here we are with coldness again. Rain.

The power was out for 3 hours this morning due to a lightening strike. I love my Thunderstorms, but not when they cause fires or problems... sigh.

Oh.. When the power went out it was 3:30 am. That meant getting up at 5am, and cooking our breakfast with the camping gear, warming lamb bottles over the propane stoves, and having lanterns and oil lambs going until the power came back on. School was not canceled, seems it was just in our area.

I'm glad we had the heat over the weekend. Otherwise I really would have been depressed with this cold snap. Right now it's just a reprieve from the heat, and lawn mowing and gardening!

Catch you all later. Gotta throw more wood on.
