Hearing Things?

I'm just sitting here, closing down for the night, and was wondering if I heard thunder?  Or is that just the generator?  Pulled up the radar, and . . . YIKES!  I'm up in that extremely colorful portion!  NOW I understand why Maisy is curled up smack underneath my feet!


  1. wow, that's quite a system!

  2. hey my word verification was "urchick".... awwwww..... :)

  3. So how did your weather pan out? I know they had tornado warnings out in northern Wisconsin. No storms here at all but very gray . . . again . . . this morning. Rats. My strawberry patch is calling me. My raspberry patch is calling me. My blueberry patch is calling me. My flower beds are calling me. The weeds everywhere are calling me!

  4. Erin, yes, all together now: "awwww"! ;)

    Mom, it passed w/o much fanfare. There was enough crazy lightning, though, that I did get up and unplug a few outlets (computers, etc.) . . . just in case. Now, it's a lovely, lovely morning. Nothing like having my coffee on the front porch rocker while watching the sheets snap in the breeze! You have overcast?! Glad I'm HERE then! ;) xo
