kfed - aw, what a cutie! so alert and the nemo blankie is a nice touch.

todd - saw that 4-day master's tickets resaling for $4 K

MH saw the storms that hit you guys before they visited us last night, glad they disappated somewhat. I just got done picking up everything that blew around in my yard, had 60 mph+ winds and ping pong size hail that beat up my hyacinths.

I had my cheap flip flops on. Did NOT want to fall in the muddy field that was quite far away from the parking area. Needless to say, DD and I were wet, really wet, by the time we got in the car.

However, right now the sun is shining brightly. More storms today, but isolated. Oh well. More normal 50's temps the next couple of days.

Happy Thursday to all!
I've read that FLA is lightening strike capital. Scary stuff! Do they have the lightening detectors in place for sports? They installed them here after my middle DS as a tween was waiting for a storm to pass during a BB game. I was at another field with youngest DS for a t-ball game. The coach was supposed to have them under the picnic shelter but they all had ventured out and were milling about in the light drizzle to cool off. My son happened to touch the fence, then lightening struck it. Went out thru his cleats into the ground, burning his shoes/feet. He went into mild shock and spent the night in the hospital but lucky it wasn't worse.

Keisha,
Sorry about your plants. Just a few miles north of me, they had good size hail. I live in the southeast part of PA, and our summers are hot and steamy. The storms we are having are just like a summer thunderstorm, but this time bringing much cooler air.

I doubt the field I was at had lightening detectors. Us parental units were very good at seeing them though! (We were also disappointed the trees we were under, were still bare and not a good umbrella.) I am sure more professional sport areans have them in our area, and maybe the schools' fields. We were in a township park field that is leased to the soccer club DD belongs to, and coaches that really wanted to get the tryouts complete.

I am so glad your DS was ok. We hear of injuries and death from strikes every once in awhile. Mostly in the summertime.

And Metro, I'm hoping you have unseasonably warm weather this coming Christmastime.

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

Yeah, the storms were wicked here last night. We gathered the kitties and headed to the basement (with beer of course ). The sirens were going off for what seemed like two hours. We didn't have much damage in our direct area but we were lucky as winds were measured at 101 mph!

I am glad all is well. Seems like the midwest has been rocked with storms and tornado's these days, as well as April snow in the upper midwest.

Oh, we had 12" of snow here two weeks ago. That was after two days of temps in the upper 60's. We have WEIRD weather here.

Did i miss waving goodbye to Carole? My DIL is on a girls trip to NYC this weekend.

Lynne We used to head to ohiopyle often. I was fond of hiking cucumber falls when it was more than a trickle I always thought that area reminded me of rainforest climate. The detectors weren't common here until my son's incident, let's just say i convinced them it would be a good idea. Always hated trying to be in two places at once when kids on different fields miles apart but if coaches can't be responsible enough to monitor the skies, then technology is needed kwim?
