Rain Delay

We decided to go for a drive tonight to look at Tippy Dam – that was so cool to see – the rivers are all above flood stage, so they are having to open up the dam… isn’t that picture cool?

We had a whopper of a storm two nights ago.  Amanda had a T-ball game, and we decided to go grocery shopping right after.  Around 9:30 we got done, and stopped by Mc Garbage Dump to get them some food and then head home.

The sky was looking ooky, so I tried to get the radar up on my phone – no dice.  So, I called my MIL to get the low-down, and wouldn’t you know, there was a tornado heading right for us.  Phil thought he saw something in the sky right above us.  We hightailed it home, going 2mph on our road because the rain & hail were so bad.

I believe there were 2 confirmed touchdowns, and multiple funnel clouds.  Here, we received about 9-12 inches of rain.  It was by far, the worse storm I’ve ever been in – rain, that is.  Red, blue, green & purple lightening…  Beautiful, but weird at the same time.

I have been busy getting our house cleaned (I was a bit behind – on laundry as well), in addition to getting the garden somewhat cleaned up.  I will post pictures tomorrow or Monday of what the garden looks like.  Everything faired pretty well. 

 And, yes… we have more severe storms coming.

  1. At least you’re alive right? Oh! And the garden survived, yes, that is what’s important!
