Around 2:00 I was too tired to climb ladders any longer, so headed to Lowes to get some electrical supplies to run the last of the wiring in the shop (for now anyway). We got within 3 miles of Lowes & ran smack into a bad-a storm. Many cars off into the emergency lane with flashers on due to the HEAVY rain & fairly rough wind. I drove slow & kept going. About 2 miles & we broke into a lighter downpour, so headed onto my roof metal guy to get 3 more bags of roofing screws. One for the shop, 2 more for barn roof repairs. Ran right back into the heavy stuff & had to sit in his parking lot several minutes before I dared make a run for his door. Got the crews, then headed to Lowes. Got all my stuff within 10 minutes & right back out the door. Teresa went into Kroger, then we headed home. Seen on cell radar that storms were down the road near home. Called Dad to check on them and lightning blew the fuse off their pole transformer. They should have it back on soon. We've had over 8" of rain here at home since July 1st. 2" today. In Taylor County, where we drove through the storm, I can guarantee they got 3 to 4" in just an hour. Streets were like creeks, and in one place it was flooding the roadway to where I had to drive very slow so not to cover my engine in water.
No cutting hay for a while, even if rain stops. Part of it is on a slope, and the discbine wouldn't even track behind me, as it would slide downhill. But every day through next Friday has chances of rain up to 50% anyway.
Willie, I'd gladly get you guys rain if I could. I know too dry is even worse than too wet. Been there too many times.
