Rains have hit Central Virginia. We were very dry, so I am comforted by the rain on the roof. pasa, how many windows did you lose in that horrible hail storm? My dad had a tornado rip up 66 trees at his river house. That was a month ago, and he is still super bummed about the long clean-up. Weather is a powerful force. The crazed vibe continues at the middle school. There is a rumor that the kids are using social media to arrange fights inside the school. I don't know why our school system thought it was a good idea for young kids to all carry computers. They find too many ways to use them inappropriately. On the up side, my irises are blooming. I'm so glad that I took the time to plant flowers in the yard. They cheer me every day.
