Environmental: A Thunderstorm in Columbia, Missouri - Recorded July 19, 2007

Reposted from My Word with Douglas E. Welch...

Firestone Baars Chapel by St. Louis Gateway Arch architect Eero SaarinenWe don't get a lot of thunderstorms here in Southern California, so imagine my delight when we were directly in the path of one during our time in Columbia, Missouri over the last 2 weeks.

Here is a recording of part of that thunderstorm, taken with my iRiver recorder and lavaliere microphones. I hope you enjoy the storm as much as I did.

Make these cute little bugs and garden settings using your own paper and printer. This might be an excellent link to save until this winter, when you will be eager for any sort of gardening activity.

I have no idea what this huge flower is that I found while walking around the campus of Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri.

Can anyone tell me what this might be?

Elsewhere Online: Shed of the year 2007: Roman temple in your garden

Just what every gardener needs...its very own Roman Temple. (SMILE)

While I think it might be a little out of place in my garden, it does give me some ideas. Maybe a Colonial brick smokehouse, like the one at Monticello or an adobe outbuilding like you might see at one of our California Missions? Thinking, thinking, thinking....

Shed of the year 2007
Shed of the year 2007: Roman temple in your garden Cory Doctorow:
Readersheds, a UK site, has chosen its garden shed of the year: a fanciful Roman temple with "Roman cushions" and an amphora.

Features: The Roman Temple is a Folly. All the best stately homes can look across their estate and see a temple in the distance. It's just that this one is a bit nearer to the house, that's all !
