I’ve have enough winter to last me forever and again. And we missed at least too of the really bad storms that the east coast got. we’ve had a very cold December with a lot of snow – not a lot of snow all at once just a lot of snow 2 to 4 inches […]

It has been a wild and wooly few days around here. Over the weekend we were hit by the remnents of Ike. The rains started Friday night when a front from the Pacific collided with the leading edge of Ik’s system. It rained – and it rained – and then it rained some more. Now […]

We are finally getting back to normal around here. My kitchen is still cleaned up, the Refrigerator looks wonderful and I’m so pleased to have power – you really don’t realize how much that power is a part of your life. You walk into a room and automatically flip the switch and when the light […]

Storm Pictures Well the clean up continues – our power was restored on Friday Morning – 4 days with no power – but at least we had somewhere to go where we could cook, take a shower, watch TV, check our email and stay cool. Thank you Lord for Children – I always knew there […]

WOW I Can’t believe we had a storm like this one – I got awakened on Monday morning – 6:04 AM to be exact – to some rumbles of Thunder. Got up and shut down the computers as we don’t like to leave them running in storms. Went to check the weather radio which I […]

I was awake on and off most of the night as the thunder rolled across the night sky and the rain pounded on the roof. This morning everything is drenched. The back yard is several inches deep in water – the ditches in the front are filled to the brim, and the basement is flooded […]

May 22, 2004 As I was getting ready to take the girls home last night, Anna called and said they were having terrible storms and, because of my experiences of the night before – I should probably wait a while to take them home. I guess the storms over there were pretty bad, I’m glad […]

May 21, 2004 I woke up this morning at 3:45 AM and could not go back to sleep. Got up and did my personal voting and added new VE Friends to the Vote Exchange Wall and corrected some bad links. I can’t find my blank blinkie button to make a button for my journal to […]
