Storm Stories

Well yesterday we had a pretty severe storm hit our area. Summer and her girls were over playing (while our husbands were both working on dad's day). The storm got so bad we hauled all the kiddos into the bathroom for a few minutes until the worst of it subsided. We lost power for about 3 hours. The kids were playing with flashlights and trying to find things to do that didn't involve the television....novel idea. Although nothing happened at our house (mercifully), other houses did not wear so well in our neighborhood. Dave and I later took the kids for a walk and ended up surveying the damage of houses around the neighborhood. Many people lost WHOLE trees (we saw at least 2 pine trees pulled from their roots), and more limbs and branches than we could count. One branch fell on a truck and did some damage, missing shingles, missing siding...It was quite the storm.

Wow! It must have gone further up that way because I did not see any damage in our neighborhood (that I know of). Plus, I know Faith had some crazy things happen by the lake. Abby's older brother lost a window in his car (an old van, not a big deal). It was quite the storm!

Oh, we did not lose power either... More of a reason why I think it must have hit closer to your side of town...

We were driving out of town when the sirens went off--trying to beat the storm out of town. Glad the kids had fun and your house is ok!
