    Chimpy, do you know why the color of the sand around ROK is different to the sand up the coast, at the Whitsundays, Airlie?

    I think that it's due to the Fitzroy river, the sand is a lot nicer on Great Keppel.:)

    Looks like we might get some of that "white" rain. This alert is not what I wanted to see...

    Severe Thunderstorm Watch
    Issued at 10:30 Tuesday 10 July 2018

    Conditions are favourable for the development of dangerous thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts and damaging hail.

    Severe thunderstorms are possible today across southern Alberta. These storms will form in the early afternoon and will move northeastward with the potential to produce very large hail. Nearer the Saskatchewan border up to golf ball sized hail is possible.

    The sky got pretty dark and we got some rain/wind but no hail developed. Have heard nothing from the farm so I would think all is okay there... :)

    Definitely relieved but the whole month of July usually poses hail/storm problems. I have hail insurance on the crops, though, so that helps ease the worry a lot. :)

    And to you, too, Concerto :). It will be low 90's today, around 70 at night - same predictions for the next week. Summer is settling in -
    I've had to water my new landscaping extra times these weeks; I don't want to lose the plants - so far, all hanging in there.

    I am not really sure. They have started the demolition and last I heard there were quite a few foreign investors interested in buying it.

    Glad to be inside this afternoon with the aircon going. At least ours is usually a dry heat unlike the sticky humidity that you experience on the East coast. NYC in July was tough for this prairie girl... :oops: I prefer being there in the cooler days of Spring or Fall. :)

    Good m/a About Again, Chimpy and all. A pleasant 20C heading to 29C later in the afternoon. Happy to be able to stay inside and enjoy the aircon. :)

    Wishing everyone a really great day. :)

    Edited to add: Got a call a few minutes ago and the first showing for my house is late tomorrow afternoon...
