Thunder, lightening, and actual rain. Not here, of course, but at a beach further up the coast it proved a gully washer. Winds up to 100 miles per hour blew through the city knocking out power and trees of all sizes down everywhere. One tree fell right on a school bus as it was moving along the freeway. No one was hurt there, and the school bus came out in pretty good condition. Not so lucky for many cars in parking lots.
No rain when I drove up to the surgeon’s office. 92 F and sunshine. I will be forever grateful that the Toyota has AC. Yes, surgery, outpatient, no general anesthesia – my bugaboo, and they just rebuild the bone on bone joint with a tendon graft. I got a shot of cortisone in the non-existent joint now knowing why they put a little pain med in with the cortisone. 93 F when I headed home. The sky was clouding over by mid afternoon then thunder began.
It only sprinkled here. Living in drought conditions takes a sense of humor….just like living without a thumb or two. Today I do books, but tomorrow at 9 I take a paper to my GP for surgery prep and permission.
