|This afternoon after the storm had passed|
I admit it. I was scared. Specs and I hid out in his room (no windows). He cried a little and I tried to be cheery and upbeat even though tornadoes are one of my worst phobias. I kept thinking about the tornadoes that ravaged the southeast earlier this year and how I would shove my little buddy under the bunk beds with a bunch of pillows if the storm hit close to us. It took a little prayer and a couple of hymns to calm my nerves. Sometimes God calms the storm and sometimes he calms the child, I guess.
Our power was out for about an hour and it sounded pretty crazy outside but we managed alright in the end. We used my cell phone for a flashlight and Specs played with his dinosaur train toys in relative peace.
This afternoon when my boys were all home safely, I walked around our house to see what had happened and saw only a few things that I thought odd.
|The picture doesn't really capture it, but the grass behind our house looked like it had sprouted fuzzy brown hair.|
|Two smallish trees downed close to our house.|
|I don't know how this chair got all the way over by the woods in the back yard and how it didn't get knocked over in the process of being moved.|
P.S. Rebecca featured one of my cards on her blog today. Fun, eh? Check it out!
