April Storms

Well, I was going to do a post on some bits and pieces of various things going on lately but this morning has brought us some fairly severe thunderstorms and possible tornadoes. I have been out this morning trying to cover as much of my garden plants as possible because they have said there is 'moderately severe' hail associated with this front. I hope not. Right now it has gotten very dark and the rain has started. There is also a tremendous amount of lightning on it's way and while I was out in the garden I could hear the rubble of the thunder off in the distance. The radar was just solid white from the amount of lightning strikes approaching this side of the state.
We had some storms come through last night, which woke me and Grendal up, but these are supposed to be far worse. I hope all of my readers that are in the area of these storms come through okay. I'm going to go now and shut everything down. I have surge protectors but they don't always work. I'll be back!!!

I'm staking my tomatoes and peppers today in preparation for that wind. Be safe.

I hate those weather advisories that have the word "severe thunderstorms" imbedded in them. It always seems to mean hail and running to cover things or drag stuff undercover. Sometimes in South Dakota it gets to be a daily occurrence in June.
Hope your plants and your roof come through unscathed!

I read about the tornado in MS and wondered if you were in its path, hoping not. Let us know how things fared there.

We had tornadoes to the south and north, but just a lot of wind and rain herabouts thankfully. Love the storms, as long as there's no damage!
