    The storms are beginning. I enjoy a nice thunderstorm as long as it isn’t destructive. The gardens will need the rain soon.

    Monday was an anxious day with the weather radio going off every few minutes warning of oncoming storms. Thank God, we were spared any damage, but not so in many other places. One time they gave a warning including Franklin Crossroads and Addington Field, to which I remarked to Floyd “That’s us,” as we are located about halfway between those two places. It soon started raining very hard, which was about all.
