If you know me, you know I don’t rough it. =) I’m a little bit of a diva.
But, this morning we had a terrible storm that tore up our town and our neighborhood. It looks like a war-zone. Trees and branches everywhere! We all walked out of the houses this morning at 6:30, it was totally like “Twister” the movie. Everyone in pajamas looking scared…. It was pretty eerie actually.
The poor dogs were scared to death. Ryan was at work, so I was trying not to freak out. Luckily, we don’t have big trees in our yard so we only had a few casualties…. our lovely, brand new patio umbrella (sob) and our glass-topped patio table (sob). The table shattered into AT LEAST a billion pieces…. Husband and wife spent a thrilling 2 hours trying to pick it all up. Finally, we decided that covering it back up with more rock was sounding better and better.
Now, we STILL don’t have power, but luckily we have water. Ryan brought home hot dogs and baked beans and we cooked them on our gas grill. Just like a campfire, right?
We are hoping we will have power back by tomorrow…. thankfully it cooled down tonight or the dogs would be dying of heat.
Oh, and how, you ask am I on the computer if I have no power and am roughing it? I’m at the library, bumming their free wireless internet! =)
Pray for us, it’s ROUGH around here!
