HEAT, HUMIDITY AND A WALL CLOUD….

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!

  1. Sigh! Guess I better stay here. I checked into Washington State. They have pretty decent summers and winters in places most times. But they also have a lot of rainy weather and more cloudy days than sun. It is those days that I get depressed most on. If it stays cloudy and gloomy more than a couple days. Besides they are on a major earthquake fault. They say it is ready for a big one some day. I hope not, but I will stay here. Have a great week. πŸ™‚

  2. You must have gotten it after us then. It was moving east here. I wasn’t sure where you lived. It must have picked up a lot of energy as it moved on again. Glad you are okay and hope everyone that had damage is getting on okay. Praying for them.

  3. Thanks, Sweets. I’m in Jonesboro, Arkansas. We only had tree limb debris, but in town they had two big rigs blown over, heavy damage to roofs and construction sites. Paragould and Manila really got hit, too.

  4. I know it was moving from the west toward us. They were cautioning everyone in those areas about the high winds. Thankfully it was not too bad when it got here. At least not as bad as they were saying. I hope everything is alright at your home place. You stay safe too. πŸ™‚

  5. Maybe I should move to England. πŸ™‚ I have lived in Kansas all my life and still cannot get used to the humidity. And the older I get, the harder it is to deal with it. It really sucks the energy right out of you. I am praying that it is cooler when our last two calves come. They are due pretty much any time now.
    I was very impressed by that cloud too. I don’t think I have ever seen one quite like that. And it looked very close.
