I am so excited, I have finished the quilt top that I can’t show yet. And not showing it is killing me. But so this isn’t a wasted post, let me tell you about our weather in SO AL. This is what I woke up to this morning:

This was the third day in a row that I woke up to the emergency siren and the weather man telling me that we were under a severe thunderstorm and tornado warning. And, over the last three days we have had over 6” of rain.

When I was out taking these pictures of the water not going down into the ground, my husband asked what I was doing. I told him I was taking pictures of our swamp. And what was really funny was that after today’s rain the sky completely cleared and the temp went up to 82F, and was very muggy from all the water on the ground. Tomorrow it is supposed to only get up to 65F: do you think we are having variable weather?

Tomorrow DH and I are going on a road trip to check out some hiking spots and Monday we will be making a trip to Goodwill to give away some large clothes and, hopefully, get some smaller shorts just in case the 80 degree weather comes back again. LOL

Gari, we got the same weather you did. It was supposed to have been dumping up to 13" an hour here. The thunder was so constant a few times that I swore we had tornadoes around us. Yesterday was OMG beautiful--not that I could even get into our yard. You at least have green above the water, we have a lake! A good bit of it finally ran off yesterday afternoon, but the levels on the shed, my truck, etc. is scary as to how much water was standing! Glad you all came through it without any trouble as well.

Can you believe this crazy weather? The swampiness and then the 80 degrees weather sounds perfectly awful. I hope you have nice spring weather for awhile without all the warnings!
