We have the ceiling fan on and another fan going which is cooling things down a bit.

The back doors are open to let in more air but it is also letting in the pungent smell of livestock shit that our local Farmer Giles is spreading on his fields.

Quite a nice aroma when you are used to it.

Lying half-awake early this morning (just after 7) I became aware of a rather noxious aroma permeating my semi-conciousness. I assume it had drifted in through the window, never did discover its origin, but it reminded me of the smell of ladies' hairdressers from when I was a kid.

I'm not a regular churchgoer, but I do like to go to the traditional seasonal services.

 

A couple of years back we had a visiting vicar for the Harvest Festival service.  He'd come from an inner city parish somewhere, and in his sermon he went on for ages about the fresh country air and the lovely aromas of the countryside.

Congregation all really struggling to stifle laughter because unbeknown to the visitor, it had been muckspreading week.

Had about 5 minutes of spitting and a few thunder rumblings, but 10 minutes down the road where Brian May lives (thanks for sharing location based off the fire at the golf course), heavy downpouring of rain.

 

But thankfully the heat went down about 5c.

It started raining here about 15 minutes ago, stopped about 10 minutes later, and now the pavements are dry again. No discernible change in temperature.

Now the proper storm has arrived. I can feel the vibrations as I type this.

A concert of electricity here but no rain. Sitting out in it now, with a large G&T with ice just in case I get fried.

Hurricane Laura brought down a Confederate monument in southern Louisiana that community members pushed to remove earlier this summer. Despite requests from residents and support from a local mayor, the government in Calcasieu Parish, where the monument is located, voted to keep it in its place during a meeting held two weeks ago.

On Thursday morning, photos shared to social media showed the Confederate statue, known as the South's Defenders Monument, incurred significant damages overnight as a result of the hurricane.
