It was still warm and muggy when I woke up with the alarm on Tuesday morning. According to the news, we have a threat of severe thunderstorms from somewhere between 4:00 to 10:00 p.m.
I walked outside in the morning and it was like trying to breathe water.
I went to the Newburgh Grill for lunch and got a cup of their bean with ham soup and a mini-Greek salad. Then I went to the CVS in the same strip mall and got some tooth paste, mouthwash and a birthday card for B___’s granddaughter.

I got my Amazon box from UPS (I have things delivered to work, rather than letting them sit on my porch – security concerns). I got a Bluetooth keyboard for the tablet. I charged it for three hours and then set it up. Just one more thing to carry, but it works!

I walked outside in the afternoon and noticed just how much the winds had picked up. It was 80 degrees, BTW.
I lucked out and it was still just hot and muggy, but not raining, when I left work at 5:00 p.m. for home.
I treated the cat, changed clothes and then went back outside. I had a couple of things I wanted to accomplish, but it started sprinkling. So, I retreated back inside.
But, the sprinkling stopped. Which was lucky as the lawn guys showed up and cut the grass.
It looked great, but as I was watching out the window, it started raining again. Then the weather radio went off! According to it, the storm will hit here about 7:15 p.m. Since it was only 6:50 p.m., I imagine I will have to listen to that damn racket for at least another half hour.

By 7:00 p.m., the rain was hitting the windows hard. Now the TV was issuing also warnings on the emergency warning system. Geesh!
Sidebar: I don’t think it was the rain or thunderstorms that were the issue. I think it was the high winds.
By 7:20, the storm and moved on and it was just sprinkling here. I warmed up the last of the shrimp and pasta for dinner. I watched the NCIS and NCIS New Orleans reruns and went to bed.
