After almost two weeks of record breaking HOT temperatures, we finally got rain!!

If it wasn't the middle of the night when the thunderstorm hit, I may have been tempted to go outside and dance in the rain!!

The roar of thunder and the ligthening show that lit up the room...

Where followed by the sound of gentle rain hitting the roof ... and then a welcoming down pour!

For the gardens are getting a much needed long and cool drink!!

If you are still in the heat wave click over to my
ATTEATUDE and Chocolate blog for a cooling great recipe!!


  1. Summer storms are so welcome after the heat and drought. :)
    Hopefully cooler for you today


  2. Dearest Celia,

    Oh, what a BLESSING from heaven for the garden indeed! Wish we got one heavy rain like that too... Your post is so well done!
    Lots of love and thanks for your visit and comment.


  3. YAY for rain! Will you please send it to Florida :)

  4. Oh, the heat wave FINALLY broke here too! Thank the good Lord!! xo

  5. Finally! I was happy to be woken up by it at 6am. We didnt get the lightning tho but certainly lots of thunder.

  6. Your images always bring my a smile! Thank you for your kindness:-)

  7. Oh my! I heard there were temperatures that went up to 110 and in Oklahoma, the concrete was buckling! Well, I hope it gets better soon! Thank goodness for the rain, huh?

  8. omg it has been crazy hot over here as well, hopefully it will cool down with some rain also!

  10. I am so glad you got rain!! YAY!
    Thanks for saying hi. I am doing good. Have a wonderful week.
    You won on my blog!

  11. We have dark clouds and an oppressive mugginess hopefully it will rain tonight!

  12. We're still waiting on rain here--we had a storm come through Saturday evening, but we need more!

  13. I will take any rain you have to spare anyway I can get it. Today we are breaking the record for a high temperature.

  14. Love the photos.. and I love Rain.. in the Summertime.. that is my friends hit single too. Google "The Alarm" Rain in the Summertime.. its an 80's hit watch the official video on you tube the lead singer and his wife are great friends of mine ..xx

  15. Oooh! I LOVE the smell of the atmosphere after a summer storm. I hope it's not too long before we have a summer storm here in Spain. I haven't seen rain since about April. I would love to dance barefoot in the rain; I won't though, as the neighbours will probably call the police and get me arrested (the drawbacks of living in a traditional city!)

  16. almost every afternoon around 4:00, the
    thunder starts rumbling and i am in
    heaven. it's my favorite music. the rain
    is the reprise.

  17. Dearest Celia,

    Oh, we got heavy rains almost all night and lots during the day. I am so happy for our garden and more so for the farmers that needed a good shower so badly. Hope it will not be too late for the sun flower field near our home...

    Lots of love,
