The storm and the aftermath


Phil: Man it looks like it's going to storm.
Me: Really? It's sunny here. Nah, it probably won't storm.

40 minutes later...

Yikes, a Big storm in moving in...


The storm rolling in, fast.

10 minutes later...

Phil: Well, I did 2 or 3 360's in front of 2 18 wheelers and hydroplaned into the grassy median. I'm fine, the car is fine, and there wasn't a wreck. I'm out of the median and back on my way...
Me: Gulp.


Here comes more rain and stronger wind.

And here is what antique tongue and groove posts look like with slats missing.

Inside of pillar posts.

All and all, a fun filled evening!

We are so grateful that Phil is OK. His guardian angel was on duty for sure. The cloud pictures are awesome. What happened to the pillars? Did the wind do that??? Oh my.

Yep, gotta love wind.

Scamp: I didn't do it! Honest!

I'm glad you are all safe and sound, esp that Phil pulled out of that one... Midwest storms!

Glad you all are safe. And that said, what gorgeous clouds and amazingly wide skies you enjoy!
(but did the wind or your little ones "chew-up" the pillars?!)

The little ones did not chew up the posts, well, the base, but not the missing panels. That was courtesy of the wind.
