Here we go again.....

Wow, last night was really wild as far as storms go. Started around 3:30 a.m. with horrendous lightening and thunder. Boomer was really nervous and panicking. As the storm intensified Linda came down to sleep on the couch so the dogs would settle down. I got up and we all took up residence on the couch as the rain pounded down and the lightening was cracking all around us. The storm kept up for quite a while. I think it was around 5:30 when I finally got back to bed.

This morning, on the news, we learned that a twister(or winds of some sort) had touched down in Robertsdale (the next town up from us). A roof collapsed on one house....a gazebo was picked up and scattered across the yard...trees brought down, etc. There was some pretty scary devastation done just a short distance from here. Tonight they are saying it is supposed to be worse than last night, with a chance for large hail (haven't had any of that yet). It has been thundering most of the day with some rain showers this evening but nothing too bad yet. We'll see how the night goes.

That was a bad storm. We had it here at The Ranch in Lakewood, NM, and I understand Livingston also was battered around. Keep safe. You are loved. Bobbie

we too are getting the remnants of the storm here in Williamsburg. Luckily though we are just getting the heavy rain bands on/off. Be safe and hope you have safe travels on monday. Cindy
