a restless night......

I heard wind and rain and hail about 2:00 a.m. and saw a lot of lightning and heard a lot of thunder.....so I got up to look outside. The wind was blowing the trees all around.....knocking things over across the street. I was thinking there might be a tornado close by so I turned on the television and checked the weather report. We were just under a severe thunderstorm warning but my oh my!

We got a ton of rain and high winds in a very short time.....LOTS of lightning and thunder.....some hail......and it continued for quite awhile.

I did not get too much sleep until the first severe storm passed through.....Noah woke up and was a bit alarmed.....so he came into my bedroom. I fell back asleep......but another storm hit a little bit later.

The backyard today has so much water near the house it is STANDING in the grass. I guess I should have mowed yesterday as I doubt I will be able to today......maybe tomorrow......but more storms are on their way.

I wish we could have had a little of that rain, things are so dry here. Our front yard looks like straw. Love you
