Kara Devilbiss’s birthday (Turned 66)
10:20 a Adam coming to help with paperwork for Texas Benefits

THE storm hit us very shortly after midnight. It began with lightning – lots of lightening within one mile of us. Then the rain came and it came hard and fast. After about an hour of hard rain it slowed down to a more our less normal rainfall. After that, I went to sleep. I woke around 3:00AM to empty my bladder and it was still raining and lightening – though the lightening was further away. It has continued to rain off and on all day and evening.



WE went to morning coffee. I didn’t stay long. I went back to wait for Adam. He was coming to help with sending documents to Texas benefits. However after an hour it became clear that I am going to need to call for assistance on Monday. They’re not available on the weekend.


DAY 73° Thunderstorms likely. Showers. Some thunderstorms may produce heavy rainfall. Highs in the lower 80s. Southeast winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 90 percent.
NIGHT 64° Mostly cloudy. A 70% chance of showers and thunderstorms in the evening then showers and thunderstorms likely after midnight. Some thunderstorms may produce heavy rainfall in the evening. Lows in the upper 60s. Southeast winds 5 to 10 mph.

FLOOD WATCH. A slow moving storm system will bring rounds of showers and thunderstorms today. Rainfall amounts of 3 to 6 inches with isolated 10 inches is possible for areas east of 1-35 to near the Coastal Plains. Additional rainfall of 2 inches is possible west of this area. Additional rounds of at least locally heavy rains are possible tonight through Monday. The Flood Watch may be extended beyond this evening.


Total sleep time 04 H 08 M, from 01:15 AM – 05:41 AM, REM 0 M, Deep 01 H 43 M, Light 02 H 25 M, Awake 00 H 18 M, 51% of needed sleep. I took an hour and a half nap this afternoon.

ELLA and I went for a walk out and around the building. We had been very sedentary day and we needed to put our bodies in motion. I managed to walk (came in hand) nearly a half mile today.

  1. spell “correction police” here…. the correct spelling for the phenomenon of the bolts and flashes during a rain storm is “lightning”. “lightening” occurs when something becomes bright, as when clouds begin to go away and the sun is revealed or when a color less brilliant.
