Rain Storm and Dinner

After a somewhat nice day yesterday, Monday, the rain started up again this morning. It was pretty steady all day until early afternoon when it stopped. About 4:30 pm I went out to the kitchen to start dinner and it was raining again. Dark clouds towards the mountains.
I don't know if it can be seen, it is raining pretty hard here. Right after I took this picture there was a loud clap of thunder.

We have a sliding glass door on the carport side of our mobile. I am standing in the doorway taking these pictures.
The noise from the rain is so loud!
Dinner tonight is pork chops with cream of mushroom soup gravy, fresh steamed broccoli and rice. The pork chops being browned, rolled in flour and seasoned with Lawry's Seasoned Salt and McCormick's California Style Garlic Pepper.

Mushroom Soup thinned with some water and poured over chops.
I had to take a picture of this. It is a heavy aluminum grill pan that belonged to Gerry's mother. You can see it was used often. I use it to defrost meat when I've forgotten to take the meat out of the freezer in time. His mother would have been 86 years old if she were still alive. She died at 58 years of age from a cerebral hemorrhage.
I think I've mentioned before that our mobile home was built in 1971 so the kitchen is outdated. I have YELLOW formica kitchen counters. I would love, desperately, to have a kitchen remodel. LOL!!
The broccoli is ready to be steamed.
And dinner at last!! It was yummy!!
