Another New Mexico style thunderstorm here: much lightning, 10 drops on a brick. At least it has cooled off. I'm watching the rerun of THE WAR. I'm reminded that my father was a great fibber: "I didn't do anything in the war."

What am I, The Dave Matthews Band?

Rain to the north of me, storms to the south. Here I am, stuck in the middle again.

Even if it is just a sprinkle, the rain heals the psyche, and makes you feel less like Job.

Thanks, R_I. I know exactly where Globe is. In fact, I was through there today. HWMNBN still haunts these boards after what, two years? He must be proud -even if not germane anymore.

river,
"The National Weather Services reports quarter-sized hail and wind gusts up to 60 mph may affect areas near Clinton Lake, and Clinton, Lone Star and Globe in Clinton and Marion townships."

Since it is against LJWorld.com policy to use the word Marion in a post, the staff writer must have cut it and a bit too much out of the NWS report just trying to abide by policy.

Not a drop far. Rain? Lighting? I'm going to go out and hold a one iron over my head. And let me know if you know where "Globe township" is.
