Kansas is showing off

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Last night we had a wicked lightening storm. Husband And I hung out watching it roll in. So beautiful, you can watch it for miles. 

Then the winds, frog strangling rains, and golf ball size and larger hail presented itself. Kansas’ short term drought is gone. Long term is a different story. If I had a garden this year, it would actually be doing wonderfully. The temperatures have been in the mid to high 90′s. So much better than the 115F of last years average. And we have had storms this late into July. This is more normal for summer in Kansas. I am happy to see it. August, well August no one should be in Kansas. 
Husband and I were down south the other day, our truck was slammed into by straight line winds. Never heard how fast, but the trees were all bowing. I giggled. Not out of nervousness, but a bit of childish glee. Not much longer now and I will be in Kentucky. Kansas is just showing me what I will miss. And yes, I will miss these storms in the big skies we have here. I guess I will have to make it a point to visit family during tornado season. 
I was reading a post by Mystic Mud yesterday. About how people keep buying the property next to her’s, then soon they would pack up and leave. She doesn’t know why, can merely assume that they are just not cut it for the demands that living on virgin land has on you. From what I understand, similar things have happened on the land we are moving to. A couple of people, using it to dump trash and then bailing out of the property. Maybe it’s haunted! That would bring a whole new twist to this homesteading thing. Ha! 
I think I am getting nervous. So much is new to me there. I just know I will end up getting lost, and unable to find my ridge. I am feeling blessed that the cabin came up when it did, at the price it did. Even though it isn’t finished, it gives us something though. And we have been working with a solar company on our off-grid plans. Of course they are very helpful, as they have a product for me to buy. But it has made things a bit easier, the math is a bit mind frying. I will give you guys a review on the company once everything is set up and going. I don’t get a discount or anything for it, bummer.
Last night during the storm, we lost power. It happens way too often. I had yet to pack our oil lamps, so those flickered merrily as we listened to the ebbing storm, then we drifted to sleep.
