the longest day

Saturday not only happened to be my dad's birthday, but it also happened to be the longest day of the year.  We are on the western edge of the time zone here in Mosnita, so during the summer it stays light here for quite a while!

The last  picture doesn't show it very well, but there was still just a little bit of red color in the sky.  Amazing!!

And then yesterday we had a nice storm.  It started off as just a really nice rain, and then the wind picked up and we had a little bit of thunder and lightning.  We were standing at the kitchen windows watching the rain whip around the yard when suddenly, right before our very eyes, half of one of our plums trees toppled to the ground.  :(  There were only 6 plumbs on that half, and we were planning on taking that tree out eventually anyway... but it was still sad to see it laying there.  It broke at the place where it had been grafted a few years ago, so it just must not have been strong enough to withstand those gusts.
