    Storm clouds abound. 2 1/2" rain so far. Weatherman says most of the unstable atmosphere is south of I 44, and we are north, so :fl

    This is the 'little stream' you usually can step over--now it has little whitecaps:

    I made it... lots of rain... not too super heavy for the most part... but I saw lots of creeks and dry washes pushing a lot of water... but no flooded roads ... or bad winds ... at least not on my route.

    Hope everyone else stays safe... just heard a ‘Nader warning for around Norwood

    We had sirens go off here about an hour ago, but the warning was cancelled shortly after. I emptied the rain gauge at 3" afraid it would overflow, it holds 5.

    We got a bit over 3 inches ... had a tornado warning last night right at bed time... went to the basement for about 20 minutes...and power went out in the middle of the night causing a carbon monoxide detector to start chirping at 2 am:th

    But that “after the spring rain” feel in the yard sure was nice this morning...the early irises look a little soggy... but this Lilly was perky ( it’s blooming a bit early because it was hot house grown and just bought and transplanted recently )

    Hope everyone else stayed safe and dry!

    I drove into Lamar today. Our dirt road, after 5" of rain, is really rutted and the edges are collapsing. You just hope you don't meet another car. In Lamar, the river (Muddy Creek) is way out of its banks, but not over the road. Some of our stream water is in there. And now it will all go down to the Spring River, Joplin, and points south....

    Orscheln's in Lamar has chicks on sale for 50% off. They have an impressive selection of breeds; Welsummer, Favorelles, Ameraucanas, Marans, plus others......and they are all getting big. In the past, the choices offered there were very limited. I hope someone buys them or they may go back to the boring old standbys. I don't need more chickens, but if I did, I'd get some Favorelles.
