I have been a "weather geek" all of my life and living in the tropics since '79 has just made it more interesting. Great site for info and friends.

Mon. May 23, 2011: I put up 5 new garden photos...but they do not overcome the sadness in our country.
Sun. May 22, 2011: Got up early to get get the fire going in the smoker and got the 3 Boston Butts on little before 7am. They are starting to make the area smell so good.
Not sure who all will be here this afternoon; never can tell which neighbors or kids will stop by!

I guess that rapture prediction was a bust because I'm still here and I would be gone if it really happened! ROLF
Thur. May 19, 2011: Well no good rain since last Saturday evening; and those sprinkles Sunday morning did not do much but wet the sidewalks. So we did not get what we needed but every little bit helps.
Sat. May 14, 2011: We are suppose to get rain but it is not here. Thought for sure some would fall last night but this morning not a drop fell in my rain guage. Weston may have gotten some because the berms have water in them out here but nothing at my house. Hope they come today because we are in trouble if we don't get rain soon.
Tue. May 10, 2011: The big fire out in the Everglades at the Big CypressNational Preserve is still going strong. It is more in Collier County to our west but the past few days with the winds the smoke has made it way here. I did not notice it yesterday but this morning it is very smokey outside and you can smell it. We Need Rain!!!

Time for a new blog thread and to wish all of our WU Mother's (including God Mothers, Grandmothers, Special Aunties, and "like a Mother") a Wonder and Happy Mother's Day Weekend!
Myspace Graphics, Mother's Day Graphics at WishAFriend.com
Our family has reservations tomorrow morning at 11am at the Jacaranda Country Club for 25 out on the terrace.
They prefer it that way and so do we with so many small children. And their inside dinning room is so crowded with all the Mother's Day Brunches.
We went to this place last year and it was beautiful, the Mother's Day Brunch Buffett is beautiful and such a great selection,
the price is right and they can accomidate our big bunch. You know I will have photos tomorrow night. :o)
We have been doing this for 5 years now, Us and hubby's parents, with Greg/Pam & kids with Pam's family, Chris/Ellen & kids with Chris's family.
This way Pam/Greg & Chris/Ellen don't have to find a way to split their day among two different houses.
Plus we all know each other and enjoy being together so it works out well.
If Bets & Scott were here I am sure Scott's family would join us also.
And all us Mothers/Grandmothers really love it being "out for brunch" somewhere instead of at one of our homes!
These weatherstickers say Sunrise, FL because technically my zip code is for Sunrise and not Lauderhill but I live just within the city limits of Lauderhill. There is confusion sometimes.
And our Fire Index/Drought Maps are updating once again.
