They are feral, not stupid, and take their comfort seriously. That’s a crown palm behind her and it’s fronds function as umbrellas over that spot, so it stays dryer than the rest of the area.

The daily thunderstorms have dumped enough rain on us that even the sand is wet. Before climate change summers would have been a dry season, with the rain going North of us.

even the sand is wet.

yes, it’s a real oddity. at least the aquifers are being recharged. i hope.

i haven’t been keeping up with your weather much, but our recent spate of thunderstorms have been anywhere from about 3 am to about lunchtime-ish, and torrential. it used to be, back when i first moved here, that they were brief, and mostly in the afternoon, anywhere from about 3 pm to 6pm.

A decade ago the storms followed a line across Pensacola and then went Northeast so that we rarely got rain during the summer in coastal Okaloosa as it stayed north of I-10.

It now comes in an dumps on us in the early afternoon, which is a real ‘boon’ to a tourist economy… 😈

It should flush the salt out of a lot of shallow irrigation wells, and provide some relief for the Chattahoochee water shed.

Send some of that rain this way, please! We’ve been so hot and dry, it’s disgusting! Lutu sure looks cute. She’s lucky she found a nice dry spot to snooze. Hopefully, the other kitties found dry places, too.

I would love to direct it to anyone who wanted it, OWL, because it really slowing my work outside, and has drowned Fallenmonk’s garden.
