Grrrrrrrrr...........


Another storm is working its way toward us tonight.  It is expected to hit us soon.  While in town, I took several pictures of the clouds rolling in, for several of my Blogger friends Kymber, Jambaloney, and Helga up in Canada. 
While in town today the clouds starting building.

This storm is supposed to give us heavy rain, heavy wind, thunder, lightning, hail, potential tornadoes and possible snow.  Now let me rephrase potential tornadoes because one was sighted about 1 ½ hours ago just about 2 miles from our home.  It came down out of the clouds but decided it didn’t want to touch land, thank God!!!

Since the weather is going to be crappy again, Bulldog Man and I pulled in all of our strawberry plants and hanging flower baskets to prevent them from freezing, and we covered up what was planted in the ground. 
Started bring plants in and bringing them in the kitchen.

I guess the next several days I will be doing chores inside the house.


What have you planted lately?

    1. DFW,

      Our safety is number one. Everything else can be replaced.

  2. Weather never cooperates, does it. I was wearing shorts & a tank top the past three days....and I just looked a the forecast; light snow on Friday. What's up with THAT??

    Stay safe. I love thunderstorms, but hate, hate, HATE high winds. Freaky.

    1. Carolyn,

      This weather is totally freaky. One day it's beautiful and you can wear shorts, the next pull out the winter coats.

      Winds give us the most damage, I don't like them either.

  3. I got my corn and beans in today. Only about half the garden area was dry enough to work in :(

    1. PP,

      I'm glad you were able to get some seeds in, now I just pray the weather doesn't cause problems with what you've planted.

  4. OH I planted, but way too late for our typical season. Just too much going on. I just recently planted the overgrown seedlings (cabbage, broccoli, etc). It will likely get too hot before they produce anything.

    Stay safe, we're getting rain again today too. I should have opted for ducks instead of chickens...

    1. Izzy,

      We can only hope it doesn't get to hot and you get a good harvest from the cabbage and broccoli. I love ducks. Did you know you can train them to be watch ducks? Great for security :-)

    1. B,

      Yes Ma'am, we will make sure to be safe. The clouds were pretty and menacing at the same time.

  6. sweet Sandy - the sky pics are beautiful and ominous. i am so glad to hear that the tornadoe didn't touch down! and just like DFW says above - stay safe my sweet friend.

    we have been having a really crappy spring so far and i have nothing in the ground yet - just can't risk it this year. i do have tomatoes and peppers started and jambaloney should have my window greenhouse built by mid-may so i will be able to get a bunch of stuff started then. we are behind this year but the greenhouse will help us catch up and extend our season. it seems it has been a crappy spring all over north america. we better get a nice, hot, extended summer. let's cross our fingers anyway!

    your friend,
    kymber
    (p.s. - your strawberries are looking great!)

    1. Sweet Kymber,

      Yes those clouds were beautiful and ominous at the same time. We hunkered down, everyone is okay. I promise to stay safe :-)

      Our spring has been crappy too. We have very little in the ground here. Once Jambaloney has the greenhouse built you will have all kinds of vegetables and fruits growing inside and be caught up. I'm praying summer isn't really hard on all of us with our gardens. It's so frustrating to get ready to plant and the weather keeps throwing zingers at us. Everyone just wants a nice spring and summer in order to have bountiful gardens and harvests.
      Keep your chin up, the weather will be changing for you soon.
      Your Friend,
      Sandy

    1. Gail,

      LOL, I like your way of planting.
      Sometimes just planting on the sofa is needed :-)

  10. Glad the tornado didn't touch down. We have had personal experience with them and want no more!

    It is still snowing heavily here.....it will help the strawberries; not sure about the fruit trees.

    1. Glenda,

      I'm happy the tornado didn't come all the way to the ground.

      I'll keeping praying your fruit trees will pull through with all the snow you've been getting.

  11. After those systems dump rain on you, they head our way! It's really been to wet to plant much, but I am happy to report I managed to harvest enough strawberries for the first strawberry short cake of the year last night!
