2-24-11 storm

In the post before I was just bragging about spring being here. We all know what spring brings.  Storms.  We had a bad one roll thru last night.  Severe thunderstorms/tornadoes, 60-70 mph wind.  It was the eeriest feeling listening to that storm roll thru.  At any given moment we expected the roof to blow off, windows to come crashing in..

One tree knocked the power line down, in the yard and across the road.  The power guys were out fixing that in the wee hours.  We fell asleep to the sound of chain saws, and continue to hear them this morning as clean up continues.  The kids and me will have plenty of branches to clean up.  Heres' a pic of one of the trees.  I think only 2 trees in our yard were left untouched.  The other 8 weren't so lucky.  Any one care to join us for clean up? I'll fix ya lunch... and supper :)

Not many signs of spring around here, yet. But we did have several days of 50 mile and hour winds in the last few weeks... what's that about anyway?

In a way, I found it a comforting sound. Knowing that while the winds are blowing and the trees are blowing and everything is taking a beating, we are safe and warm and comfortable indoors... just as in the many storms of life, we are safe in the arms of our Jesus.

I'm looking forward to a good old thunder storm. I don't want the damaging winds tho.
