It seems each afternoon around 4 or 5 the storms roll in. We get lots of flash bang but not a lot of rain. The worst of it usually heads for the plains where there are large stretches of open prairie. I always get a little irked when the weather... Read more

Now we are on the sliding towards 2020 point of the year! I guess on Summer Solstice that is the true mid point of the year. Such an unusual year weather wise that it is hard to fathom that it is half over. Which causes me to look at my goals an... Read more
