Last night we were awakened by horrible, thunder, lightning and wind..
Our little city is known as the tree city. It is gorgeous, and today, there is destruction and trees down everywhere. So far I hear of nothing tragic, so that we are very thankful for.
It was NOT the the thunder and lightning that woke me, it was the howling strong winds and all the debri hitting our windows. My first reaction was to fly out of bed and get the boys from upstairs. I did just that and we laid in our closet until it passed. It was scary and I felt like we were in a hurricane. We have damage and debri today, and we are in urgent need of a tree guy. We have a tree hanging over our house.
We are safe and I am so thankful for that.
I promised to announce the chalk paint winner and I did generate the winner through random.org.
I thank you all for joining in this giveaway.
You all will not be seeing me for a few days. We have a lot of work to do, and it is just shocking to go out there. Again, thank GOD we are OK. We are however suppose to get another storm come through, so we have to get as much cleaned up as possible.
The winds were so strong, it blew my heavy wrought iron table across the patio~
Everywhere you turn, there are trees down, and the city is doing a great job of removing them from the streets. Buses were running, and kids are in school.
This tree is hanging over our house. The tree guy said he would do his best to get out here today.
Please keep your fingers crossed, because if he can't and we get another storm, this tree is coming down.
Be back soon!
