What a storm we had!


We had the worst storm of the season tonight. Well, actually, the last two days have been the worst. The sky was near black tonight and the winds were fierce reaching up to 70 mph. I had wondered a couple of times after looking out of the window if a tornado was approaching. All of our trees were sideways (thank God none of them broke like many other homes), I could hear the house creaking, and you can see people's tables, chairs, BBQ's and other personal belongings either falling over or blowing down the street. I have never seen a storm this bad before here, nor have I seen so many bad storms in a 48 hour period before. I'm so glad that it's over. I hear that another storm is coming Sunday so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's nothing like the last coupe of days. Anyway, just as the storm was passing, we looked outside once again and couldn't believe the most beautiful sunset peaking out below the covered skies. What a nice ending to such a stressful storm. This is a small reminder to finally clean out my basement as tornado season is fast approaching! Yikes!

Keep safe,
