Strange Weather

So yesterday it got up to 107 degrees out here, in Rosamond, CA. (it is the Antelope Valley High Desert) But out of nowhere we got a thunderstorm. Loudest thunder I have ever heard in my life, lightning, and pouring rain that filled the gutters inside ten minutes, and lasted for a couple of hours. Strangest weather change I have ever seen in my lifetime, even when it hailed one day in June back when I was in high school. Oh yeah, and the power was out, for about six hours. Good grief, it was miserable. What do you do? Read a book by candlelight? Lay out on your roof and test fate? You certainly couldn't call anyone from a cordless phone. Nope, you go to the store (one far enough away that they still have electricity, of course) and buy some BEER!
