Well, summer is here! And hopefully after all that rain in July, we'll have a lot of nice weather this month.
I was shocked to see pictures of the north side of Izumo and Unnan after the heavy rains. Around my house, the rain was heavy, but I hadn't seen any flooding. However, one day Lake Shinji was about one meter from the street at the lower points of Route 9. I had never seen it so high. It was the first time in my life I have been afraid of the rain. Mother Nature is quite powerful. I was reminded that we are always at the mercy of our planet. I hope that you, your family, and your friends were all okay and didn't suffer any major property damage.
Have you already had a Covid-19 vaccination? I recently received my ticket for the vaccination. I'm hoping to get my first shot sometime in August. I'm hoping this means I can go see my family in California sometime soon. This is the longest my parents have gone without seeing their grandchildren. And my daughter keeps asking me when she can see her cousins again.
Not having an OLS BBQ this month sure makes this summer less exciting for my family. We bought some fireworks and ordered some sausage, and we plan to have a small family summer festival. What are you looking forward to doing this summer?
