It has been raining in Iowa for over two weeks. It is not just little rain showers either,its one severe thunderstorm after another. The last two weeks a front has been sitting over our state with what the weather people here call training thunderstorms. I’m not sure what the science of it is but I can tell you it means it is raining cats and dogs as the old saying goes. Yesterday again we awoke to storms and it was getting a little old. I had to work all day in Iowa City and drove in good rainstorm to get there. When I came out from work the southern sky was black and you could see the clouds rolling in. I was thinking it was going to be another interesting drive but as I headed north to Cedar Rapids there was sun shine ahead. :) I could see the dark sky behind me but it never made it’s way to CR, by early evening the wind came up a little and blew the clouds out, the humidity went down and it was an absolutely evening.
I woke up this morning to blue skies and it made my day. I was so excited that after a dental appointment I went to the car wash and washed the truck. For those of you who have never met me one of the things you will notice when you do is that I am on the short side, all of 5 feet 1. Our truck is a one ton duelly pickup and is on the big side as pickups go. I actually take a step ladder to the car wash with me as it is the only way I can get in the bed of the truck and that is the only way I can clean the roof of the cab. I’ve had guys at the car wash shake their heads and laugh as they watch me washing this truck, but I get the job done.:) I then came home and shinned it up a little more and cleaned out the inside.
