we got rain!

we are so blessed to have gotten the rain and none of the damage that came with Sunday night's storms...

there was ton of lightening and strong winds...
up to 60-70 mph...

8 miles south- their tornado sirens went off and sent people scrambling for cover...
trees down, damage here and there...
everyone is safe...
;0)

the corn is growing faster now...
and 8 miles north, where DH works...
there were trees down...
sirens went off...
they had one on the ground and headed their way...

the new part of the island flower bed in the back...
people were posted damage reports and power outages...

but not here...
we lost power for a tiny bit between midnight and 4am...
but nothing like all the towns around us...


flooding north of here, too...

mulberries are coming on...

so last evening, I hoped on the mower to go check this out...

we have known about this nest for awhile and just left it alone...
but I had to see if there were babies or not...

I searched the ground first and found nothing...
no broken eggs and no babies...
so I gently pulled the branch down, and stuck my arm up as far as I could reach and got this and saw that they were alright...
then I got out of there so mama could come back to the nest...
3 beautiful robin eggs...
still safe...
blessings in the storm...

and then DH got to work yesterday morning...
trees down all over town up there...
and the roof was off of the office...
and the rain poured inside and ruined the computer that they use to weigh the trucks in and out...
so, they will have to replace that very soon...

but right here...
there was a solid red line of thunderstorms with hooks in them coming right at us...
but right before it got to us, that line broke...
red just north of town...
red just south of town...
and it went through here in the yellow...
and the red joined together again just as soon as it passed us...

and right here we were safe...
and the guys said this keeps happening...
and I smile and say yes it does...
because mama prays...
for us to be safe...
our property to safe...
our town to be safe...
;0)
it has happened several times now that I am paying attention...
and more aware...
there has to be many of us praying the same prayer...
;0)

I hope you got what you needed out of the storms if you were in the path and nothing more...

That's good news that everyone is safe and that you got the rain. We had some heavy downpours come through, gusty winds, but everything is ok. The gnats and mosquitos are a different story......and I'm sure the weeds will start popping up, so today after work it's weed patrol. I have those maple tree things popping up all over the place. Ugh!

Lots of 'red and yellow' storms around here too. But so far, we haven't gotten but rain.

But rain, keeps coming. Good for growing things, up to a point. And then... -sigh- Too much? Hope not.

And of course, he just decided to drain our pool completely and clean it quickly. but rain keeps adding to what he is pumping out. lol. it's an old gunite pool and you never fully drain them. but it's in need of quick repairs, and he can't do 'em, without being about to walk in it.

oh well.... we will seeeeee... ,-)
