weird weather year

Today is thunder storms like crazy with weather service warnings for the storms producing high rates of rain, ( 2 inch an hour) and lightening cloud to ground, and flash floods into the city areas.  Garden has not been sure if it is suppose to grow or not all season.  I confirmed it with another woman the other day.  Georgeeee's mom ( one of my adopted kids) said the same time I did when we were visiting that ," the Plants don't know whether to grow or not."  It is still cooling off at nite for the most part.  Very weird weather years lately.
