It was a movin' and a shakin'

Wild and crazy storms are most likely nothing new to anyone familiar with the mid West. I'm sure it has something to do with the enormous lake sitting just to our East and the utter lack of any geological features rising above 14 ft to block or quell any storms. But to two people who have spent most of their time in the mountainous West, last night's storm was awesome!


Luckily, it hit just after we got back from the store, and for the rest of the night I felt that I could look out the window and see a little old lady riding her bicycle past our house! The lightning and thunder were non-stop and close! Several times, I was staring out the window at the spectacle and lightning would strike so close, that I found myself blinded for several seconds. The windows were shaking and rattling with every roll of thunder!

And to think . . . Naomi put her foot down and wouldn't let me go on my run last night! The nerve! I had to content myself by sitting and watching the guys on Mythbusters blow stuff up . . . while the cable went in and out of course.

Fun night! Oh . . . and we checked on Brooklyn several times . . . she was sleeping, well, like a baby!

You're right Kevin...the NERVE I had trying to keep my husband from becoming a running Kevin-kabob! :) Thanks for staying in though. It was nice to not have to worry!

Yeah we get some crazy intense storms out here too, and of course, Teya always sleeps right through them!

Hi, guys! I just flew in today. Jeannette flew in yesterday afternoon. We were completely unaffected by the storm. A lady on the blue line told me today that it rained pretty hard last night, but I would have had no clue as to how intense it really was if you hadn't blogged about it. Someone has to pay attention to those sort of things. :) I'm glad you do. Hope to see you soon!
