We got a good amount of rain today.  Around 3:00 p.m., I could hear the wind was howling and looking out the parking lot to see the sky got darker each minute.  Then the rain started pouring down, pounding on the windows.  It was a good hour of heavy rain.  It stopped around 4:45 p.m. before quitting time.  Traffic on my way home was not too bad.  It has been pretty comfortable the last two weeks.  After the stretch of hot temperature and then thunderstorms almost every weekend, we have been enjoying comfortable weather in the mid 70s.  I started to go to the park during lunch hour to resume walking routine. 
These photos are from Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  We were there on Sartuday, June 30th.  From the high point of 2,389 ft,  we were supposed to be able to see seven states, Tennessee (of course, we ARE in Tennessee), Kentucky, Virginia, South Carolina, North Carolina, George and Alabama.  Seriously, I would like to know how anyone could tell where the state lines were and where exactly each state was supposed to be!
It was a very hot day but once we got up to the observation point, the views made it all worthwhile.  It would have been so nice if we could soak our feet in the water.  Or taking a bath under the waterfall :)
