The Perfect Storm

More later.....

last night a terrible storm rolled through here and the power has been out since about 7 p.m. last night.

We just got our power back on but first light this morning revealed that a mini-tornado hit our neighbors property. I'll be back later with more.

Everyone is safe, thank God for that. We fired up the chainsaws first thing this morning for the clean up.

I'll be back later with more information.

Oh, I am so sorry! I am glad that everyone is ok though!

I read your blog first thing in the morning. When you hadn't posted I was worried that something had happened, I'm glad it was nothing serious. Good luck with the clean-up--I know you've had more than your share of storms.

I was out on Hughes Rd last night when it hit visiting a friend. It was really bad! I love thunderstorms, but I have to say this one had me a little scared.

Hmmm....this is the part about midwest thunderstorms that I DO NOT miss!

So glad to hear everyone is safe.

Mary said...

Yikes! Glad to hear everyone is safe. :)

Oh! So glad you are okay!! I hope your neighbors came out of it okay too!

Suzanne, I am not afraid of storms until a bad one causes serious damage and destroys homes and lives. Then I thank God it wasn't me or someone I love. I'm glad you are all fine after that scare.

I tagged you with a silly but fun song tag. Come to my blog and see what it's all about. Play along if you want to. smile!

Take care, Jeanne

We had a small tornado go through our area this spring---took the roofs off of buildings, then skipped over a few blocks and demolished a fast food spot on a main road. Odd, odd...how the damage is scattered. I hope you all will be back to normal soon and that your neighbors are OK.

Hope everyone is ok.

Chainsaws have to be more fun that grout, even if the reason isn't as fun.
