May Showers in June

Evansville weather has been positively unpredictable lately. The past 3 weeks have been filled with local weather people calling for rain, but it never shows up. If it does, it’s extremely spotty and actually never reaches my house. May 2015 weather for Southern Indiana has been very odd, to say the least. We haven’t even had any real thunderstorms, to speak of.

Yesterday, the predictions were right, we actually had a thunderstorm early in the morning. Although the storms passed, we did experience a great soaking rain for the better part of the day. It was mid afternoon before the sun actually poked it’s head out and made for a beautiful end to a day, albeit a little humid. I took the opportunity to play with our family’s new Canon Rebel, with some extremely amateur photos of our flowers below.

Could Use Some Rain

Sure could use some rain, this drought has been killing me in Evansville Indiana.  How many days has it been since it rained last?

I guess the good news is that there is a storm front moving in the size of Missouri and it's all red on my radar.  Of course I'm being sarcastic and I'm pulling my hair out ready to be done with all this rain.  Come on, at least give me 2 days in a row where I don't have to worry about my gutters or flooding.

If I wouldn't have mowed in the rain last Saturday it would have probably been another week before I will get the chance.  Give us a break mother nature, give us some sun, make the storms go away!

Storms Rockin Evansville, again

I woke up this morning to the sound of thunder and the flash of lightning.  It seems like every other day is a storm here and not just a happy go lucky storm, but one that drops 5-10" of rain at a time.  Most of the storms last week went north of us, so I truly feel sorry for those who are experiencing the flooding right now.

However, my house is located on the South East side, so I'm not immune to flooding either.  Whenever these storms start rolling in I get anxiety for fear this this will be another gusher that brings in the wet stuff, flooding my living room.  Hopefully the storms today will pass north again or at least be mild with the rain they bring.  According to Weather.com we only have a 50% chance of rain tonight(fingers crossed).

Doesn't seem to anyone else like we haven't had just a rain in 08?  Instead of receiving the occasional shower, all we get are severe thunder storms, nothing in between.  Oh well, soon enough we will be into a drought, just like last summer, until fall hits.
