WE ARE FORTUNATE TO LIVE BESIDE ONE OF THE LARGEST FRESH WATER LAKES IN THE WORLD....LAKE HURON
We had ourselves a real smasher of a storm come through in the night that left tree limbs down & our whole area without power from about 4 to 8 a.m. this morning. A few roads closed due to fallen trees. The lightning was non stop as were the continuous sharp claps of thunder. Torrential rains had water running down our driveway. Been a long time since we had a severe storm like that go through.
Kelly headed off to Cambridge early to see her daughter & two 'Grands.' I was hoping to begin painting the porch steps but they were too rain soaked from the overnight storm.
Little Cora & I hopped into the Jeep & headed for Goderich & a few groceries. A drive down to the harbor, a stop at the beach & we were home again by 11. The heavy humidity began settling in around noon & that was enough of being outside for me.
It seems Google has been busy while we have been sleeping. You might want to check your Blogger Dashboard if you haven't done so recently. For some of us, maybe not all, that Dashboard has changed. It is all part of changes at Google & you can read about it here... BLOGGER REDESIGNED. I stumbled across the change by accident Monday night & the total redesign threw me for a loop because nothing was like it was. The night was late & I didn't have the patience to try & re-familiarize & figure everything out then but I sat down & had a second look at it today. Everything is still there but now you have to find it & re-acquaint yourself with it again because the format is completely different. I would suggest folks do that now before you have a problem down the road & have to go to the Dashboard......& find it all ker-fuddled. Only thing I don't like is the lighter printing on white backgrounds, etc. I find dark bolder printing on a slightly colored background much easier to read.
I almost hate to mention this for fear of jinxing myself but I am about to enter day 4 of, ‘no peanut butter & honey sandwiches.’ In my last two trips to town I went right by McDonalds & Tim Horton’s & I’ve been working at changing some other eating habits as well. Just gotta get rid of this excess weight & that’s all there is to it!!
At the bottom of our right hand column I have added some interesting weather trivia such as...the top 10 Hurricane & Tornado States across America. Where does it get the hottest & coldest. Who gets the most snow. What cities are prone to hail. Who gets the most sun in a year, the most rain or the most dry days. Lots of interesting trivia there....if your interested:)) Just head that-away >>>>>>>>>>
