I've been neglecting my blog a bit lately, as I've been spending most of my time outside enjoying the beautiful weather we've been having. Especially after Monday night's events...
I awoke and sat straight up in bed. It was completely white outside due to the constant lightning and massive rain. And the wind... oh my the wind! I threw the covers over my head and kept asking my husband if we needed to go to the basement. Most people I work with said they did go to their basements. It was a long and scary night.
In the morning, I had to move broken tree branches out of the way so I could pull out my driveway to go to work. I wasn't sure if I'd even be able to get to work, considering all the flooding.
The closer I got to work, the worse the damage... trees and power lines/poles were in the road. Billboards were completely gone. New bleachers at a baseball field were wrapped around trees.
They say it wasn't a tornado, just a severe storm with straight-line winds. The damage sure was reminding of the aftermath of the tornado though. At work, we all stumbled around like zombies due to serious lack of sleep.
So, yesterday, I spent a few hours picking up branches and sticks out of the yard. Then, I grabbed my fishing pole and went behind the equipment steel building for a few casts and some down time.
I'll be back to posting on a regular basis soon.
