It hasn't got here yet. I wish it would cool things off a bit. OOOOOOOOOOOeeeee it was hot enough to fry an egg on the side walk today.

Any particular part of a cow? I hear you hillbillies use a sort of local 'bovine scale' instead of 'beaufort scale' to classify storms. The worst storm being blacker than the inside of a cow's .... aw, never mind.:D

First time I "heard" that said was from a man named John Hartford...look him up, great music...(he wrote "Gentle on my Mind" way back when)

The thickness of the cow should make a difference in how dark it gets inside it. So are we talking about a little jersey, or a big, mostly black holstein?

tripe then you might be able to tell. I nominate the ladies to test that and get back to us with the results.

The storms came rolling in off Lake Erie on the North Coast.
Last night, right before dark,It looked like that scene in Ghostbusters, really ugly black swirling clouds.
I half expected to see Gozer appear and destroy the world.


Norwalk, Ohio,A little town to the southwest of us got 10 inches of rain in a few hours yesterday!!!
The Vermilion river just west of us is spilling over her banks and flooding some homes tonight..
On the plus side.....the grass is real green now.

this week. A little difficult to do from what I understand. They speak of great bolts of lightning.

The lightning last night was as intense as any I've seen in my 49 years of living here.
My poor little dog "Kirby" was so freaked out he hid in the basement and shivered, until it was all over.
I sat out on the porch with an icey cold beverage and enjoyed the show.
