Right now there is calm before the storm on the farm, but it’s not going to last long by the looks of the sky. Rumbling noises abound and a wallop of a thunderstorm is imminent.

We need the rain though, May has brought only one inch so far. Much to our dismay weather forecast is calling for a chance of frost. The other farms have one inch high corn and while we’ve held off planting, they have to be nervous. Our fruit trees are blooming and flower beds planted. Pray no frost!

Can’t imagine those folks in Oklahoma what the sky must have looked like. Might head to the basement just in case. Stay safe friends.

The Florida Gulf Coast is taking a wallop today. Storms have brought what is probably much needed rain, but a damper on our boating and offshore fishing. The radar is showing strong bands w tornado alerts going popping up on the TV & phones.

Last nights on shore fishing catch was of all things, a stingray. There were probably 25 or so riding the surf. Never saw anything like it. Thought they were black tip or some kind of shark feeding until it was on the line. Released it safely!

Guess a rainy day in Florida beats a snowy day at home.
