All talk and no action

There was a cow standing next to these trees, but it got blown away

Each afternoon for the past few days storm clouds formed, the temperature dropped, and the wind started blowing hard as if we were about to get a good drenching of much needed water. We even got a little thunder and a bolt or two of lightning. I’d close up the Rolling Steel Tent and await the deluge.

But there was no rain. Oh, a few seconds of droplets, which is better than nothing even though it’s as close to nothing as you can get without being nothing.

I hope insulting the weather will make it think, “Oh yeah? Well I’ll show you!” Even flooding would be welcomed.


  1. Even over here along the Tennessee River in Alabama the rains seem to be less than usual but at least we get something every couple of days.

    1. When I was a teen my adult brother lived in Huntsville. He took me waterskiing on the Tennessee River. Or maybe it was technically Guntersville Lake. We went through a lock.

    2. It has been a nice area to live most of the time except for the severe tornados now and then. Of course I "live" here only when the grands are out of school.
