Wow! what a thunderstorm we had this afternoon. Close lightening, loud thunder and rain falling heavy. At times the rain looked as if it was falling in sheets rather than drops. In about an hour and a half, it rained 4 1/2 inches. Water was standing in the ditches and even under the carport. The ground could not soak up the rain, it came down so fast and so heavy.
DD and her friend were here working on my computer and I had taken the baby girls to the optometrist in exchange for the favor. When it would thunder really loud, they would say a giant was taking steps. I have no idea where they heard that. They are both afraid of the storms and that seemed to calm them.
