Rain wonderful WET rain

Fell last night.

Bit of a nasty storm actually that brought sideways rain pounding the front window. It had been overcast off and on all day and we had a teasing 10 drops earlier in the afternoon and nothing else. 

I told Mr. Fix It if I water it will rain.   Sure enough, 30 minutes after I turned the hose off the sky opened up.   Watching the news this morning I see we got the tail end of the massive storm front that knocked power out to much of the north east and thousands in our area. The excessive heat will make repairs and those waiting for repairs miserable.

Looking out this morning everything in the garden seems to be perking up and doing well.  Should make weeding a bit easier this morning.

The heat and power outages remind me to check our emergency supplies & I think it’s time get off my duff and decide which solar oven I want to get.   It would sure help in keeping the heat out of the house.  There are so many on line to choose from and the prices range from 0 to outrageous. I want an oven that we can really use,  not just for emergency’s but something that can be used on a daily basis.

If there is a solar oven you’ve used and can recommend I’d love to hear from you.

Out to tackle more weeds

  1. Glad to hear you got some relief! Good luck hunting on the solar cooker. I have been researching myself but have yet to make a decision. LOL Let me know what you decide and how you like it! Have fun weeding.

  2. Katie,

    Glad to hear you got rain, most of us are hoping for rain. The drought is really bad and things are dying off. It's great news that your garden is perking up. Not so great that weeds are also perking up. Have a great day!

  3. We've been seeing the weather and fires that have been hitting parts of the US, makes me feel rather relieved that the place where I am in NZ isn't prone to such adverse happenings even though other parts of NZ can be! Be safe ♥


Hey! Thanks for stopping in I love hearing from my bloggy friends!
