Can The Rapture Be Far Behind?
Today our city experienced an earthquake. While hubby and I ran for the doorway to protect ourselves the children continued to watch cartoons on TV. I guess they figured if it was really bad we would have grabbed them and dragged them under the doorway with us. After this little incident the children were AGAIN given instructions on what to do during an earthquake. Watching cartoons was not on the list.

The heat here today has been unbearable. Not only is their high humidity but the last time I checked the temperature gauge it read 109.

We had to run to Target for some last minutes school supplies. The inside of the store felt like heaven. I think they had their air conditioner set somewhere around 60. It was quite a shock when we left the store and were thrown into what Samantha said "Must feel like how Hell really is". Yes, it is that hot.

As we were pulling out of Target we noticed lots of black smoke coming down the hills behind us and flames shooting into the air. A forest fire had obviously started while we were shopping. Now we had black smoke to go along with the unbearable heat.

Earlier in the day, while the TV was on, they interrupted programming to announce a severe flash flood warning in a local area. They didn't just flash it across the screen at the bottom like usual, they interrupted programming with a big booming voice making sure no one missed the announcement nor the magnitude of seriousness the announcer wanted to convey.

We had lighting and loud thunder but not rain in our area.

I was waiting for the locusts and poisonous snakes to appear at any moment but thankfully we were spared.

It has been one wild afternoon around here.

We've been in monsoon mode all evening ... flooding, hail, lightning. Awesome!

Glad there was no damage with the earthquakes. Aren't kids funny?

Have you considered perhaps...moving??? Sounds like a dangerous place to live to me!

Did you at least get any cool rainbows like Kelli?

That doesn't sound fun! You don't have to respond to this, but it sounds like you live in CA! My parents live in Lancaster, and they said is has been VERY hot! We had several weeks in a row of 100+ temps. Who ever thought we would be thankful to be in the 90s!

After reading this post, I am really thankful for our 90-something weather! Just found you this week (sorry can't remember where!) We too are adopting from Ethiopia, and I'm looking forward to hear more about your journey.

I remember that day - we must not be too far from each other because it sounds exactly like what happened near us. Thank goodness it has calmed down now, though I heard there was more thunder and lightening today...

(Hi - I usually lurk :)
