FINALLY !

We had a  pretty bad storm last night, lots of rain , finally!, we needed rain badly. The wind was gusting at times so fast and furious that I thought we were going to have a tornado! have already been through two when I was younger, but it passed with out damage. After the storm, this morning everything looks so happy, the plants are all perked up , birds are chirping and the air has cooled off with fresh breezes, so I took advantage of it , turned of the A/C and opened the windows, ahahahah ! to smell the sweet fresh air and hear the sounds of nature, wonderful !  It will be getting humid again today but not nearly as humid as it has been, let alone the humidity has been high so has the temperature its self  and that makes it unbearable ! There is a large beetle that makes a buzzing sound in the humid weather called the Cicada , the humidity is what they use to make the sound .  When I was a child on the farm we used to call them hydro bugs cause they made the buzzing sound that you would hear from the hydro wires along the country dirt roads lol. The return of the Blue Jay birds tells me that we are to be cooling off very soon as they are back early . I enjoy the Fall weather, what with the fresh cool air all the colors , fall fairs,craft shows, harvest and much, much more !  Today I think we will just putter around. Hubby is finishing another woodworking project, a bird feeder!  Ya know I"ll  have to show it off on here when all completed !  Until then, have a good day to all !
