It’s been dry for several weeks now after months of back to back rain rolling through our little corner of Texas. About 6 pm yesterday we had a thunder storm come through and drop a little rain on us. Mostly just a couple of sudden downpours, nothing slow, steady and maintained for any time at all, but it did cool things down a bit.
I went out and took the flag down and closed up the garage when I first heard thunder in the distance. Ten minutes later the first downpour arrived. There is something about a thunderstorm I have always loved. Never been afraid of them, just enjoy hearing the thunder and seeing the clouds boil up before a good rain.
The temperature went from 88° to 73° in a matter of minutes. Nothing like that fresh, clean scent after a rainstorm. I love it. The storm cells were moving almost due east and hanging around for a bit, not moving very fast. I went back and looked at the radar after the second downpour hit and the cells popped up right on top of us instead of moving in from somewhere else. Weather is unpredictable this time of year.
On the knitting front: I am about 4″ from finishing the ribbing on one pair of socks…
…so I decided to cast on for another pair of socks…
This makes five pairs of socks on the needles and the red pair I recently finished, and still needs to be washed, makes it six pairs of new socks. I’m on a roll!

From the midwest here and I too love thunderstorms (although my dogs don’t). Wow 5 pairs of socks on needles at one time!! That would stress me out. I can only handle 3-4 projects maximum on needles and those range from tops/sweaters to socks. My little brain can’t handle figuring out where I was at if there are too many projects. Have fun with all your socks!!
Love your socks! 😀
