Safe and Sound

Just an update for those miles away hearing about all the bad storms we've been having.... :)

We've been having some severe weather the past 2 days.  Almost constant.  Yesterday (Tuesday) it started in the early  morning, with a break in the late afternoon, then started up overnight.  Today... on the other hand... has been one loong tornado/severe thunderstorm/flash flood warning.  Just as soon as one storm rolled thru, another was right on its tail.  We were fortunate.  A little south and west of us got hit hard with tornadoes all afternoon.  We had heavy rain, strong winds and crazy thunder/lightening.  It was bad enough, that most of the morning and afternoon that the kids spent alot of time in our closet.  They piled pillows and blankets in there.  Each had their favorite toy. It was fun for awhile.  But it quickly got old.  The last dash we made for the closet, the kids complained:  Not the closet again Mom!
This river is between our house and the main highway.  These were taken early afternoon.
As of early evening, the water wasn't over the road.
We're happy to see clear sky behind the storm.  According to radar we just had our last severe storm roll thru.  I'm not sure which I'm looking forward to more:  A quiet/storm free evening  OR   the nice day tomorrow so the kids can play outside and burn off energy!!!  At any rate.. we're just happy to be safe and sound!
