What’s Up? – Hurricane?…Not!
We continue to have hot days with high humidity but we hardly get a few drops of rain. However , the News read on Sunday morning:
“Tropical Storm Barry trudged through northwestern Louisiana on Sunday, threatening tornadoes and dropping up to 15 inches of rain in some places to create life-threatening flood conditions along the Mississippi River.
Barry, which made landfall as a category 1 hurricane on Saturday then quickly weakened to a tropical storm, was 50 miles (85 km) south-southeast of Shreveport with maximum sustained winds of 40 miles (65 km) per hour on Sunday morning.
Fears that Barry might devastate the low-lying city of New Orleans like Hurricane Katrina did in 2005 were unfounded, but rain in the forecast could still cause life-threatening flooding, the National Weather Service said.” (Reuters)
Fortunately, we are far from the path of the Tropical Storm Barry.
Aldough, we would like to get some rain to keep all our plants looking bright green and healthy.
My backyard stll gets visited by many birds looking for daily meals, their consumption is higher than previous years, the reason, many blackbirds are still staying in the area with their broods and these are voracious! Other than that, it’s just like any other summer days.
My suet cake is a total success! Most birds go crazy for it!
Glad to read of the success of your suet cake, you are clever!
Thank you, Susan. 🙂
Beautiful photos of beautiful birds. Good job on the suet cakes. I wish I could send some rain your way. Barry has brought rain to us ever since Friday night. Still have more coming tomorrow and Wednesday. Hugs
The weather forecast doesn’t call for rain all next week. It’s 91º F, right this minute! 🙂
Hopefully you will get rain soon. You and your family have a wonderful week.
Your fig tree and crepe myrtle are beautiful and that little chipmunk is a cutie. I have not seen chipmunks around my place.
Thank you very much, Mags. 🙂
I am glad that the threatened hurricane was not a threat to you but i do hope that you get some much needed rain soon. We need some here too.
Thanks, Tom. Let’s hope that we both get rain. 🙂
Cheeks is quite cheeky! 😉 Awesome fig tree, and I do like your Crepe Myrtle, HJ! 🙂
Thank you so much. Donna. 🙂
