    Good Morning Bunkerites!

    Nope, don't mind at all. Go ahead and edit to your hearts content

    Looks like most of the nastiness is moving to the south of Triple K at this point......

    Ah! Reply is broke..
    Yes I used to cower in the bathtub too. But for a different and much more frightening reason.

    Later, I discovered that you can actually leave your clothes on when using a bathtub for a shelter.
    I did not know that for a long time. Old habits are hard to break.

    But seriously, the bathroom is only good if it has no window and a bathtub is good if it is the old cast iron type. Clothes are optional, but survivors prefer clothes/on.

    Nice day all day, then thunder, lightning and rain started about 7PM and it isn't over. No Twisty winds.

    A lot of water in low lying areas. If they told the truth, they wouldn't be low lying areas, they would just be low areas.

    "Reply" is still broke.

    Tomorrow should be interesting....
    Iíve been told the Arkansas River keeps parts of Tulsa safe. Storms usually move in from west and supposedly river stops them. Indians used to think so Iím told but not sure thatís true. The big long long track storm that Destroyed Moore OK the first time and moved up the turnpike from OKC to Tulsa actually fell apart right around the river. I was cowering in my bath and it went away a few miles from me. Coincidence or not.

    Hey Gal!!! Glad to hear that things went well with the doctor's appointment. Keep on tickin!

    I know you and the hubs are looking forward to the birthday adventures.

    LF, I had a few tomatoes and peppers when I was a wee lad... they always produced like crazy. I would grow some more if I wasn't so lazy.

    MSGal--thanks for checking in!!!!! So glad you are doing well.

    You probably have a longer gardening season than we do. After May, my garden is pretty well shot. Then I try to "solarize" the garden (cover with plastic) for a few months to heat the soil and kill the weeds and seeds. I don't bother to plant during hurricane season b/c everything gets ruined. Then, seeds won't germinate when the ground gets too cold. So, I either germinate my own or buy plants in late February--that last until the end of May. Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

    BTW Whatever happened to our "other" Gal--FMGal?

    It could be worse...

    I could be camping!

    Although camping in this heat IS worse, even without severe weather...

    A lone thunderstorm wandered over my house late last night and turned out to be quite the drencheroo. I should get one of those big rain gauges. I already check 3 of them at work for CoCoRaHS (not daily though) so what's one more?

    I'm right at the bottom of the ENH circular scrawling.

    It figures.

    We already have enough....Thank You!

    Move along to where they need it....

    I guess ENH means more than heavy rain!

    That was a funny pic of the Rat who didn't care anymore.

    But sometimes domesticated cats are *******.
    (Another name for "Cats," plural, which is banned from the site, but besides the anatomical "street slang" reference, it can also mean, weak, timid or afraid.)

    Cats also are natural bullies, but they are smart enough to size up an opponent before throwing down the gauntlet. They also know when to bluff and when to taunt. Dogs are easy victims..I believe the cats in the video were startled by the rat and its blatant audacity. They didn't have time to size up the rat. They saw it and thought, "Yeah, it's a rat alright, but he won't come over here, no. He will look up and see us and then stop and run. (Chuckles to itself) That rat is no match for us, I'd just like to see......
    HEY! HE'S NOT STOPPING!
    WHAT THE ****?"

    This gif reminds me of certain occasions in a married man's life, during a certain biological event in his wife's life and a small spark to set it off. Haven't you ever seen that same look the dog is showing on a man's face and the same with the cat's?

    I just give mine a good bleaching at the end of the season to flash fry anything in there - seems to do the trick. Then again I have a 6 month dry season to help.
