to the weather weenies, I'm wondering if the habanero is going to get enough sun to do anything.
Yesterday, depending on what time you listened, went from a medium percentage to 90% that we would have severe storms. Which did happen: big hail, high winds, heavy rain and some scattered tornados. Nobody dead, happily, some property damage. In this case, the storms moved northwest to southeast(roughly) in front of a cold front. Which caused the forecast for today to go from '50% chance' to 'a slight chance' of rain today. It's cloudy and cool, though the clouds are lightening a bit.
The grass did dry enough yesterday that I got the mowing and edging and such done, so the grass won't be quite as high in a few days when it next dries out(if this pattern continues). And the birds are combing all that fresh-cut area for seeds and bugs, and the dog is ignoring them. Odd thing, when the birds are in the garden attacking the tomatoes, she goes after them; she's caught and eaten a number of them. But when they're in the yard? Yawn. I've not even seen her chase a squirrel; doesn't mean she hasn't, but I've not seen it.
On a sad note about dogs, I've written a couple of times about Shika, the visitor I've had a couple of times. She died a few days ago, and to say daughter was broken up would be a drastic understatement. Then, a couple of days ago, this beast appeared:
Meet Rafferty, another rescue. Who seems to be settling in pretty well. And the older dog has decided he's not a problem, although no snuggling up for naps. At least not yet. Daughter's cat, however, considers it to be another canine pest that should be sprayed for.
Life goes on.
