What a waste of rain

All the rain we had yesterday did absoultely nothing to drop the tempratures or green up the grass. Sure there are a couple of green spots here and there, but it's still basically brown. And the heat is still yucky, making me droop.

One of daddy's friends was at a thing called a ribfest yesterday, people there got hurt by lightning that hit the ground and traveled into a tent they were in. Lucky for the friend he had the brains (and a weather radar app on his phone) both of which told him to leave before the storm got there.

Here is a friendly reminder and a warning about thunderstorms. Lightning can hit something from up to 2 kilometers (1.24 miles) away from a storm, so if you hear thunder the safest place to be is inside a building (tents don't work as the incident yesterday proves), and trees aren't a good place to seek shelter either (lightning will hit the tallest object i.e. a tree). So get inside a permanent building when you hear thunder, and heed the weather warnings.
