Last night, we heard loud thunder followed by heavy rain and some hail. I don't know how big the hail was but I do know that it was large for a few minutes. This morning, I checked the rain guage. It is official. We received a full inch of rain at the Blaus' house! Thank You, Lord, for each and every drop sent to us!!!

At one point, our entire street was under water. By this morning, there is nothing--not even in the gutters. Our land was so dry that it soaked everything up.

Some of our flowering plants were hit by the hail but I think that they'll be just fine.



  1. I'm so glad to hear some rain came out there! Praise the Lord!

  2. Thank you sooo much, Simone! We need it desperately. Our wheat just looks awful. Looking out over the fields of wheat, you can usually see a bunch of bald spots. Some of the wheat is still trying to head out. No one is expecting much yield this year. It is just terrible.

    Simone, if you don't mind me asking, are you from Kansas?

    Great to hear from you!!!
