Its 67 degrees right now. I was up at 2:30 last night to the sound and sight of multiple lightening flashes and thunderbursts. My cat was running around trying to find a place to hide. It poured for about an hour and the road was flooded for a little bit. Good thing I live uphill so the water keeps going downhill.
We had our first sale of the year and my phone went off when it started pouring again and flashed the flood warning. It was a little late as the road was already disappearing under the rain water and the sump pump was also inundated. We did have a crowd of diehard people who came out anyway to brave the weather. I didn't sell much but I still ran out of the usuals. Cucumber and cilantro and I did manage to sell almost a tray to kale. We decided to leave everything until Monday to put it back since the rain wasn't letting up much.
On the drive home I had to fight my way through the puddles on the freeway.
It has been raining off and on and the sky is totally socked in, but it looks like most of the heavy rain has passed. Funny thing though, I was cold because I was wet, but during the storm there wasn't much wind and the rain was relatively warm. The wind is only starting to pick up again now.
It was still a good day. Since the crowd was small, I had time to walk around and I talked to the bonsai guys and found out I can get akadama and wire from him cheaper than amazon and he told me where I could get some turface locally. Now I just have to find the rest of my bonsai stuff. It is packed somewhere on the lanai.
I talked to someone else who is giving an organic pest control class next month and we talked about what is available for pest control and where some things could be found. He was looking for tanglefoot. I saw it at Ace and at Koolau Farmer's a while ago, but not recently. I know who doesn't have it so it eliminated some other vendors. I also got a lead on where to get some large pots. I just don't want to buy a sleeve so I may have to think about that one. I picked up some pepper seeds. Not bad for a rainy day.
