Last night's long and tempestuous storm took the starch out of the daylilies. They are dragging their heads and dripping today.
The storm started around midnight at Cedar Bluff and went on for a good hour. Lightning cracked and flashed minute by minute. Rumbles of thunder came close, then crashed in the distance. Rain pounded down, but there was no hail.
The rain gauge shows a paltry half inch. For all the sound and fury, one would expect an inch or more. With drought condition, every drop is precious.
