In between thunder storms.
The weather during the night didn’t get that bad as they had predicted, we got one shower and that’s it. I looked in the ditches and creeks by the bog now on our latest walk and the most of them are all dried out. As You know that’s something I like 🙂 But the weather today is rather wobbly. Lots of wind, some sun, some rain and some thunder. The wind just started to blow even harder now so I guess more thunder is on the way soon. The sky just turned dark lead grey right now.
Normally flies go crazy when thunder is near but they didn’t even bother me when we were by the bog. One or two flew around me and I got one or two mosquito bites but that’s it. I soo hope the rain will stay away from us for quite some time more 🙂
The magpies are still hanging around in my garden and the parents protect their young ones with their lives. That will soon change though, there are few animal parents that are so evil towards their kids when they get tired of them as magpies are. They can even injure them so bad that they die if they insists on staying close to home. When they leave here they will also get hunted by all other old magpies in the area until they can find a place to stay. I guess there won’t be many survivors every year. Their cosines the Jackdaws on the other hand keep their young ones close and next year those one year old ones will help raise their new siblings.
I just got a text message from my phone company suggesting I would pull out all power plugs since thunderstorms were approaching my area. Nice of them to warn me but it is a bit late since thunder already has passed by a couple of times 🙂 I wonder if thunder has any effect on bread fermentation? I’m just about to bake a bread and I wonder if things will work as usual or perhaps the fermentation will work better or worse? Thunder do affect my head though and my stomach can’t take any head ache pills but it can take coffee and I’m drinking lots of that today 🙂
Have a great day!
