Weathering the Storm

Spring has come in like a lamb and is going out like a lion. These are just a few shots I took last night of the ominous clouds we had prior to the onslaught of storms last night. We spent the whole afternoon and evening watching the local weather channels and taking shelter in our bathroom while the tornadoes, literally, swirled around us. 

Luckily, we did not suffer any damage, nor injury, but the same can not be said about the communities around us. I worried about my friends, as I heard reports of damage in their hometowns, and they texted me to check on us. Not even five miles from where we live, people lost their lives.

Tonight is round 2, not predicted to be near as severe. But I just wanted to take a moment to remind everyone to be weather aware and respectful of mother nature. Don't think it can't happen to you, because anything can happen to anyone of us. 

Stay safe my friends.


  1. Oh my gosh. I just got the chills. 5 miles from your home? How scary! So glad you are safe and the storms tonight aren't as bad. Will keep you guys in my prayers.

  2. Wow, I can't even comprehend that - we just have rain in London and complain about that! Stay safe lovely.


  3. I slept straight through the storm, but today there are branches and leaves absolutely everywhere, and several trees have fallen down. A huge tree took down the power lines just up the street from us, and I'm surprised that none of the houses there were damaged.

  4. Stay safe and sending my prayers for your family & friends. So far in New England we are just having a very cold and wet spring.
