It's Raining! It's Pouring!

What a way to kick off the New year! We were hit with HEAVY storms today! We went to sleep last night to the sound of rain falling & the wind howling! The rain was coming down so fast & hard this morning @ 5 am when John
got up for work. He opted to work from home & I'm glad he did. I didn't have to worry about him traveling to & from. When we all finally woke up & started our day, we were surprised to see our neighbors tree, yes their WHOLE tree in our front yard (The picture was taken from our front door). The entire tree was up-rooted & the wind moved it to a new yard. As we made our way to the store tonight, we saw that many of the fences in the neighborhood have been completely blown down. We hope everyone is safe & warm tonight!

Hopefully it missed John's car. Yes, it was really bad. They definitely don't build fences like they used to. Glad everyone is safe.

The storm is now on our doorstep! I thought our roof was going to blow off last night! The power went off 4 or 5 times. We woke up to only a few shingles in the yard. Some ours, some nieghbors I guess. We drove around the neighborhood. One house has the whole side missing the siding. The speed limit 20 sign was broken in half laying on the sidewalk. Numerous other things. Glad we are all safe!!!

I really enjoy a good storm as long as everyone is safe and I'm locked safely inside my house.
