Mother Nature has gone & lost her mind...

My goodness... what is going on with our weather lately?

The pictures from Joplin are just heart breaking.... not to mention all the other areas that have been effected by tornados lately.  What is the deal?

(I can appreiate this because I, myself, love my crazy meds)
Last night, we had another go with storms.  We were expecting two big rounds.  Luckily, the first round ended up going north & missing us.  Thankful it missed us, but around Bedford, Indiana, there are homes destroyed & damage that is horrible to see...

our big round came in around 10:30... sirens going off & Tornado Warnings posted.  Off to the basement we went.

Ricky had already been asleep downstairs (in his man cave) & we had gotten everything ready earlier with flashlights & radios & pillows ... & my camera... (yes, Ricky laughed at me because I said I want my camera to be safe) ... & I headed to the basement with all the dogs behind me.  I turned on the TV, sat down & instantly, 3 dogs are in my lap shaking like little lambs.  The 4th dogs is just sitting at my feet with a ball in her mouth... nothing - I mean NOTHING - not even impending doom - will stop that dog from playing with a ball.

The wind is howling, the rain is beating against our basement door & then our electricity pops off & instantly comes back on... just enough to sound off our house alarm.  That jolted Ricky straight up & he literally RAN straight into our back room in the basement...

I had to laugh because I said, "Gee - thanks for worrying about me & the dogs sitting here on the couch" ... each man for himself I guess.

he said, "I was asleep - I didnt know what was going on" ... ok... good enough

Until.... 10 minutes later, the electricity pops again & WHOOOSHHHH - there goes Ricky running to the back room again leaving us all on the couch again.

At this point - all I could do was laugh so hard I thought I was going to pee on myself...

Storms passed though - we only have limbs down everywhere... all is ok & we are safe...

Ricky may actually still be in the basement.... I need to check on that.

Hope everyone has been safe during this craziness that is Spring.


  1. We were under a watch, never a warning, but I woke this morning the rain coming down harder than it has in the 4 years we've lived here. Needless to say, then I was AWAKE.

    Now I want to sleep, but instead off to work!

  2. LOL...did he scream like a girl?

    ya, it is crazy weather for sure. I am so over all these storms!!!!

  3. We had hail at our place - it was pretty rackety & scary for a while there. I can't believe we just went from room to room looking out the windows - we should have at least TRIED to hunker down somewhere in our little slab house with no interior rooms :)

    P.S. My word verification is "water" - really? No more water!

  4. You made me laugh out loud with that one! I love it, and can just picture Ricky running straight past you and the dogs...

    I haven't had a decent night sleep all week, with fearful kids, loss of power and tornado sirens.

    So sad for the people who have lost so much in these storms. I remember that horrible feeling from so many years ago.

  5. Glad you all are safe. We had the tornado sirens here too just as we were arriving at church. But all is okay in our town. Thank you Lord!

  6. So glad you escaped the wrath of these awful storms. I've been praying they would quit already!

  7. yes, this weather has been wild and strange for sure.. I am glad you are okay though...

    Have a nice day..

  8. Girl,
    This weather is crazy!!! We have had storms and rain and all sorts of yuckiness and today it is cold. But it is suppose to warm up and the sun, yep the sun, is suppose to come out and no storms. YAY!! I hope that holds out.

    The devastation in Joplin, MO is unlike anything I have ever seen. I haven't been there, but I linked to a site that gives before and after pics on my blog today. It is so sad.

    I've been praying for you girl. I know you are in a difficult season.

    Hugs and lots of love ~~ Dawn

  9. There were tornadoes just North of us here in CA too. CRAZY! I'm so thankful you are safe. Many of my friends and family are in the mid-west so it really hits close to home when you see the total devestation! Prayers for so many who have lost so much.
