Weather

Tonight we are getting some much needed rain. We've already lost power once, probably will again. It's thundering and lightening, but it's RAINING! Winter Haven is known for it's chain of lakes. There are 20 plus lakes on the chain. Only problem is....we've been in a drought for so long, boats can't get through the chain. The water in the canals is ankle deep. So we will take our rain in any way, shape or form that it comes. I wish there had been some way to pipe the water down that is flooding other parts of the country, to our location. Would save everyone some grief. I am excited to be getting rain. I actually tried to take some pictures of it, but none of them turned out. I will however share with you this morning's sunrise. I have to be to work at 6:30am. I carpool with my supervisor, Bill. When he saw the sunrise, he stated that he wished he had a camera. Low and behold, I just happened to have one. Bill pulled on to the Lake Summit boat ramp so I could get a picture.
ENJOY!!!!!!

We're so lucky to live in such a beautiful place Bonnie. I too was grateful to get the much needed rain last night. The thunder scares the bejebies out of our little dog but he always survives as long as he's in my lap.

I made a donation for your walk. I was glad Missy posted the site on her blog.
