back into the house!
this cloud, as it moves in, it has the appearance of
orange cotton candy.
Much of the whole day yesterday was filled with lightening, hail, and tornado sightings. The school bus usually drops the kids off around 4:30 p.m. The school called around 3:30 p.m. and said the bus could not make it through the high water. So off Sohpie and I go to pick up my son. The clouds are looking darker with each passing minute. I make it down to the main road to find a man waving his arms at me . He tells me I am about to head into the worst "golf-ball sized" hail storm that he had just gotten out of and a tornado was also on the way. So just like Dorothy and Toto, Sophie and I hurry back home and make it into the back door just as the storm hit. The school had also taken the kids to the gym because of the tornado. We only got "pea sized hail" and no tornado, thank goodness. After all was said and done, my son did not get home until 6:00 p.m, my garden got enough rain to hold for a few days, the green house suffered no damage, I will have photos next week as everything is sprouting!... and Muddy Mildred, was still standing, smiling, a little bit more muddy. with sprouts all around her! I love rain, but I dis-like lightening and hail. One thing I love about storms.......when they are way off in the distance.... are the clouds. It is hard to capture the beauty on camera because they change so fast. I hope you all have a safe and happy weekend. I always enjoy hearing from you! blessings, Kathleen
