    This is the first day in weeks if not over a month that it wasn't over 100 degrees in the shade. I remember it was getting up into the 100's back in May.

    We have been getting way too much rain lately, I had to mow my property twice this week, the grass is growing so fast and tall, but the main problem is all the work I put into planting and growing 18 potato plants, they are ruined...The potatoes got too wet and soggy in the ground, they are rotting, I lost my entire crop...

    Today was the hottest day in August, 91 degrees but the humidity was low so it wasn't so bad, and severe thunderstorms and hail forecast for Saturday afternoon...

    We have been getting probably 40 percent more rain than normal for July and August this summer, it's raining right now and was earlier today too before noon...The temps have been lower too which is nice, but right now a torrential rain...I lost all my potatoes I was growing in the garden, 18 plants wiped out by too much rain...

    I just checked on Hurricane Lane. It's dropped to a strong Cat 4. Even though it will probably encounter wind shear and diminish, there is still a good chance it could make a direct hit on Oahu and Honolulu. Even as a Cat 2, there is tremendous potential for flash floods and major oceanfront damage, possibly costing billions in repairs and lost tourism revenue.

    I can't believe the lack of coverage for this event in the national media. It's scary because it's starting to look like Hurricane Maria and Puerto Rico all over again.

    The fully charged battery on my weed trimmer died before I could finish my tiny lawn. That's never happened before.

    We were hit hard by flooding as I and my husband has noted. Today we are due for more storms. Some just as bad. We have everything inside. We are preparing for more flooding.
    Blessed Be
