2 Inches Of Rain

 We got two inches of rain at our house yesterday afternoon!
Yep, the rain drops were about 2 inches apart on the sidewalk!
In other words, we only got a teeny tiny bit of rain.
In other parts of town this happened.
Micro burst leaves trees, power lines down all over south Tulsa
Flooding in south Tulsa.

A large tree split near 71st and Lewis.

All this happened just a few miles from our house.
Weird!

That is bad about other parts of Tulsa but good for you. Do wish you'd get rain. We had microbursts at our house 2 times last year and what a mess and expense. but we got a new porch roof, grill
and shed out of the deal. Maybe rain will come, gentle rain, your way soon.

Weird is right ~ the weather is unusual all over the country.
We've had sprinkles for the last two days, and I can't remember it ever raining here in July. Glad you're safe and sound.

Glad you didn't get the damage, but too bad you didn't get any rain.

we heard thunder here on the north side of Stillwater but no rain either.
We did get a short shower Weds. afternoon.
More would be nice but I am thankful for the rain the got.

Yikes to all that damage!
