The storms down there have been insane, we watched a video of a semi truck being washed away. Crazy!

Stay safe, and dry.

Sure hope everybody stays safe.

It IS crazy weather everywhere. It rains here every day and then turns sunny again. Like living in the tropics.

I'm catching about 1/2 of my roof runoff into rain barrels. I haven't used a garden hose yet this year.

I wonder how the Tabasco plant is doing.

Sending prayers for those in LA! The "stuff" can be replaced, but our friends can't! Pray that all are safe, and hopefully dry!
