Thursday, Aug 9 – storm came through

I went to the beach about 12:30, and there were 5 kids ready to build castles. But within the first half hour, we could hear thunder off in the distant Southwest. When I saw a lightning strike, I told the kids we needed to be off the beach.
We left all the buckets, shovels, and molds on the beach, thinking it would pass quickly, but it got worse – and I had to run back and get them safely up on the dune.
I barely made it back to the house before the heavy downpour started.
The forecast for tomorrow and Saturday don’t look very good, but it could be a good day for making cookies!
