As I laid in bed thinking back on the storm and why I felt I had to tell the story, I realized that the amazing intensity of the storm was one thing. But the real reason is I remember back to when I was a little girl. I must have been in 3rd grade. My mother and I went to
My thoughts and prayers can't help but go out to those who live in the little mud shacks surrounded by dirt yards, roads, everything dirt and now I'm sure a sea of mud. I just can't imagine what it must be like for them. I also think of all the corn that is ripe in the fields. Corn is their main food source. I wonder if it will be ruined. I am also wondering if this rain made it down to the lower part of the country and if the rivers will flood downstream. They don't have Doppler radar here, or weather warnings and updates. You take what you get and wait to see what happens next.
So maybe this thunderstorm means a start of change in the weather from this oppressive heat to fall and cooler weather.
