Stormy Weather

In case anyone was wondering, yes, we did get storms last night, and we are fine. 

Of course, we were sleeping when the big one arrived.  The wind woke Hubs up around 11:30.  The thunder woke me up around 12:30.  Then we both went back to sleep.  (Not sure if he was awake from 11:30 to 12:30, but I know I wasn't awake all that long.) 

We like to say we live in the sweet spot.  In the past four years, many storms have blown through, but they all seem to miss hitting us directly.  :fingers crossed: 

This morning, I scrolled back through the local news' FB posts.  Appears like our county was never 'storm warned' or 'tornado warned' or anything.  Of course, they care very little for us down here away from the more heavily populated counties, so there could've been a warning or two and we didn't make it to the FB feed.  :shrug: 

I woke to a message on FB this morning from my oldest brother warning me that the storm was on the way like quarter inch hail.  Didn't get that either.

Hubs said it sounded like we got rain.  We needed that.  He'll check the rain gauge once it gets light out.  Then we'll both give the property a cursory once-over to make sure we didn't get any damage anywhere.  (Not out in the woods, though.  It's warm enough for ticks and snakes, so the trees out there are on their own.)  I do wonder if the big limb that's been hanging by a vine out in the canopy has finally fallen.  Usually we watch it swing in the wind, but it hasn't fallen in three years, so I'm giving it a 50/50 shot.

Anyway, it's all good here.  We didn't even lose power.  Yay.  And now I can finish editing Natural Causes because after last night's push, I'm like this close.  Or maybe I'll go fishing.  Cuz that's how I roll.

What about you?  Storms last night?  Are you getting them today?  Hang in there and stay safe if you are.  :hugs:


  1. We had massive wind all day. And HUGE wildfires across the state. None impacted me directly, but damn...the footage was crazy and authorities evacuated an entire town. We missed the rain. Storms fired up just east of the metro. We desperately need it. Glad all is well your way! Yay for sweet spots!!!

    1. We had a worse storm Thursday night, but it was all okay. Ack about the fires. I hope the storms on Thursday brought you guys some much needed rain. It was a deluge here for a while.
