Wow, it has been a while.
Been busy , but not that busy , just a little lazy I guess.
Well , lets see what is happened since I last posted.
My husband, myself and my oldest son went to Florida in the middle of June to Florida
for a wedding , our niece , Samantha, got married
Her husband's name is Nick.
We were gone for a week, it rained every day here in Oklahoma while we were gone , it rained once in Florida. Some how the weather is backwards. It is supposed to rain a lot in Florida, and not a lot in Oklahoma. We had rain every day for 19 straight days, not sprinkles , but measurable rain, at least an inch.
In 2005 and 2006 we had a drought , so there was less rain in those years than there has been so far this year. We have had an average of 29 inches of rain statewide so far this year.
All of the lakes are literally overflowing , Lake Texhoma, it straddles the border between Oklahoma and Texas, is dumping enough water over the spillway to fill an Olympic size swimming pool every 3 seconds http://newsok.com/article/3082640 . We had enough rain for a while. There is mold everywhere. The humidity is up, makes it hard to stay cool. In Oklahoma it should be hot and fairly dry right now.
The grass should be slowing down on its growing, it is growing like it has been given "super grow and get thick" fertilizer. It is so thick it makes it really hard to mow. The ground is so wet it squishes and sinks in when you try to walk on it . This is not normal for this time of year. It is not good for the wheat farmers and the hay farmers, it is too wet to harvest and a lot of the crop does not grow , the baby plants and the seeds rot in the ground.
It was hot and no rain today, but it was very humid. You take two steps outside and you are covered by humidity. I went shopping this afternoon. I always get my cold stuff last, so it is not in the cart very long. By the time I got to the checkout the frozen items had water dripping off of them.
Lets just say, we are ready for a break for a while. No body could go to the lakes for July 4. Most of them were closed because the camp grounds were under water. We are having localized flooding and flash flood warnings just about every day.
Debra, who feels like she is drowning in the air.
