It has been a very hot and humid day the last two or three days. Actual temps have been in the 90s and the humidity levels have been anywhere from 100-118. I think it was Monday it was so sticky the horses and even Jenny was so sweaty, I thought they had been in a shower! I felt so sorry for them. I know they were not very active. Just standing with heads hanging and swishing tails at flies. The many, stupid flies.
Yesterday was not quite so bad. And a good thing. My Mom called last night and said that her AC was acting up and not running well. Not a good time of year to start to go out. She was working and asked if I would come by her place and wait for the man to come and fix it. Our granddaughter was here since Saturday and needed to go home anyway. There was a storm moving in ours and Topeka’s direction. And this is what I seen as I rounded the corner from our house.
And this is the rest of the cloud as I turned the next corner.
I tried to video the clouds just to try and get how big this thing was. It is very short and really doesn’t do any justice to what we were seeing.
As we turned onto the highway, we seen some impressive cloud to ground lightening and ran into some pretty heavy rain just inside the Topeka city limits. It was heavy enough I and several other drivers had to slow down in order to see as we drove. Thankfully it didn’t last too long and Mom’s air conditioner got fixed and is now running nice and cool.
Stay Safe and God Bless!
