Microburst

Jan and I were sitting here eating dinner when we noticed it was getting very dark outside. I decided I ought to run out and pull the plug on my boat in case the 30% chance of rain happened, as well as take the fish finder out of my boat since I’ll be out of town for a few days. As I was walking out there I saw a flash of lightning with loud thunder. As I was walking back up to the house the wind picked up and the tops of the trees started swirling. That’s when the hail started. Literally within seconds it was looking like snow on the ground. The air cooled off considerable and the fog came rolling in. It as a pretty awesome storm, all except for the tree that got snapped in the backyard.

Now I guess we need to get some of the neighbors to come on over and help us get that part of the tree cleaned up.

Eastward Journey

Our good friend Sue suggested we take CA highway 20 towards Reno- and I have to say it was a beautiful choice. We ran into all different kinds of weather today. We had heavy rain, light rain, sun, heavy rain, sleet, sun, hail, sun….
