June showers on May flowers

Winds gusting as high as 80 mph prompted local emergency managers to activate TORNADO SIRENS in DUBUQUE last night.
The sirens sent kids, stuffed animals and pets scurrying into our damp basement. The adults reached the safe area in time to bring everybody back upstairs with an "all clear."
HEAVY RAINS accompanied the winds. While we escaped the flash flooding that plagued other parts of town, the rains did lay siege to the flowers and vegetables we planted last month.
The sun is supposed to emerge this afternoon -- finally -- and forecasters predict "mostly sunny" skies for tomorrow.
We need some sun. We have had our fill of rain.
