The Folly Of Forecasts

The past two days the forecast has called for no rain and yet, both yesterday late afternoon and today thunder has rumbled and lightening cracked, the temperature has plummeted and rain has fallen. 
Is falling, right now. 
This is how it always used to be in summer. The days would swell with heat and humidity until the blessed afternoon storm would roll in and we would all breathe in the sweet, cooler air and the night times would be more comfortable. Seems like the last few years though, the rain has not come as frequently but these last two days have been a fine exception, a familiar relief. 

Tomorrow, if all goes well, I will have procession of a brand new 16 inch MacBook with plenty of storage and all my files on it. I can’t tell you how relieved I am. So do you realize how many weeks I’ve been blogging with my thumbs? Okay. Only two. Plus three days. 
In other words- an eternity. 

There’s really nothing else new to report. I did stuff today. I am neither hugely better or any worse. I am being as patient with the process as I can be. 

More tomorrow. Hopefully a lot more. 

Love...Ms. Moon

  1. Glad to hear you are healing, albeit slowly.....but steadily. And new Mac hopefully up soon! Life goes on and glad your thumbs may get a rest! LOL! Your rain/thunder sounds like a slice of heaven. We have been hot in the 90's and today has abated some......so very happy. I don't *do* heat well
    Much love and a gentle hug

    1. New Mac! Hurray! The older I get, the less I do heat well either. Ugh.
      Gentle hug back!

  3. There's a lot to be said for "no worse". And yes, the weather(wo)man lies more than s/he did when we were kids. :-) Love, Andrea xoxo

    1. I think the forecasts used to be a lot vaguer in the old days. Now it's hour-to-hour which does engender a lot of mistakes.

    1. I have no idea what all it'll do. I am intimidated.

  5. You're doing well to tap this stuff out on a phone. For me it would be impossible as I don't possess a phone and have gorilla thumbs that would necessitate an XXXL phone. Do they make such things?

    1. Yes. They call them "tablets" but sadly they don't make phone calls.

  6. we used to get, if not daily quick summer storms, then every few days. we used to say, if you don't like the weather wait five minutes. now, it's drought or deluge.

    1. They always said the same about the weather here. And it was true.

  8. You'll be one happy woman if that machine shows up as promised--ready to go.

    6+" of rain here yesterday (along with 3-4" in previous days) means we had flooding due to the hurricane/tropical storm. EF1 tornado with 90 mph winds passed half a mile from us. No power due as it took down many trees and the power lines. No power when you have a well/septic means no water, no flushing, no showers, etc. etc.. Also did not have cell service as it evidently was overtaxed, too, so had no idea what was going on until later in the day. Not complaining. Our garages (including one attached to house), back yard and driveway flooded, but it is drying out. Our DD lives nearby and had power, so we stayed there overnight. Big blessing. Power, amazingly, is back up today. Kudos to the power co. considering the amount of damage around. Some folks lost their lives and homes. Provides perspective.

    1. It did! It has! It's here!
      Sounds like the storm really did hit you guys hard. I can empathize for sure. So glad you got minimal damage and your power's back on. And I agree- those big storms will definitely put us in our place.

  9. Oh patience is so hard, but of course it's what you need right now. That MacBook will help. I'm glad you had the storm to cool things down. I often like the emotional buzz from a storm.
