Summer Thunder

If there was any doubt as to the severity of last night's storm, the picture above depicts the lightning strikes as the storm passed through. Bayview didn't get any, but just north and south as most local weather patterns are, got heavy strikes all the way across the Chilco area and up the north fork of the Coeur d'Alene River. Fortunately, it was a wet storm with much rainfall, which not only squelched most lightning caused fires, but watered my tomatoes, too.

On a more personal note, my daughter, Debbie Gibson, was involved in a serious rollover accident last night. She is in critical condition, but is stable and expected to survive. Broken ribs, collar bone and several other unnamed injuries. We are all praying for her complete recovery.

July 29: Debbie passed the crisis during the night and appears to be on the mend. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.

Dear Herb,
My thoughts and best wishes are with you at this very difficult time and of course your daughter. I trust all goes well. In accidents often the first twenty four hours are the most significant and it sounds as if you may be through that time.
Kindest regards,

Oh ouch, my husband and I had a rollover accident several years ago. Dodge Rams do not fly well. I broke my collar bone, it hurts. Thoughts and prayers are with your daughter and you.
