The 7am alarm sounded early today. D-in-love brought both the kids by and hubbie and I both got up with them.
I had to be at the Asheville Imaging Center at 8:45 for my bone density scan so I did chores early and got ready.
We left it up to g-son to decide if he wanted to go or for him ,g-daughter and hubbie to stay home.
He decided he wanted to go so off all of us went. I arrived right on time and was in and out as usual in about 30 minutes. While I was inside hubbie and the kids were roaming the parking lot. G-daughter thought it was the funniest thing for her brother to sit on her lap.

We then headed to Goodwill so g-son could look for more of the "sickbrick " legos this store has.
I saw these chairs and tried to think of a way I could use them. Sadly they were left behind !!

We fed g-daughter in the parking lot then made stops at Walmart and Southern States.
The kids were both really good so we stopped at chic f-la for g-sons lunch then came home and ate left overs from yesterday for ours.
G-daughter took an hour nap after lunch while I got laundry started. Hubbie went up to his shop to work on some of the wedding decor.
It started storming and drove him back inside the house. The thunder and lightening was really close and the rain poured down leaving 1 1/2 inchs in the gauge in about 15 minutes with the wind blowing it sideways. This is looking out the bay window under our front porch.
The yard looked like a lake.
The loud thunder woke g-daughter and her and g-son passed the storm time away playing .

The wrestling matchs have already begun.
They were glad when the TV would work again after the hard rains drowned out the satelite.
I finished 4 loads of laundry today before d-in-love picked the kids up. G-daughter had another 30 minute nap and she had to wait for to wake up before they went home.
The air conditioning repair man came this evening and they are going to have to replace the motor in their unit so they are still without air conditioning and are thankful for the 70's temps today.
After they all left hubbie and I surveyed for damage and found our driveway washed badly with all the ditches full of gravel. I got a shovel and worked in a light mist to reopen the ditches for the next rain.
Things look like they grown several inches just this afternoon with the refreshing rain.

I finished chores and had supper before I got a call from #2 son asking how bad the storm was today. Lightening apparently struck his house. He said it blew apart one of his Direct TV boxes, threw a couple circuit breakers and now he has 3 kitchen receptacles that won't work that weren't on either of the blown circuit breakers plus his big TV in the living room won't work.

Hubbie and I rode up to his house to help him look for more damage but didn't find anything.
We came home to a nice cool evening.
To update on my Brown Recluse Spider bite. It has been a week since the bite , I have been on two different types of medicine for 4 days and this is what the bite looks like today. Some of the surface is starting to form hard scabs over seemingly smooth skin, the redness is larger than before but a lighter shade of red. These critters bites cause nasty things to happen to your skin. I got a scare today as I fund another brown spider in the house but after looking at it under a magnifying glass it was not a Brown Recluse so I feel much better about that.

To get in more decade pics for June before the end of the month tonight is June 1996 All Star baseball. #2 son played each year in these games and this year they won the state tournament.

Grateful to God that we were spared any damage from the storms today and thankful for all the days blessings especially the rain.
God Bless and Good Night.

Sounds like you had quite a storm. So sorry to hear about #2 son's damage to his house. At least you finally got some rain. That spider bite still looks really nasty. Sure hope it starts getting better soon. Blessings
