Last night started like any other night. We put the kids to bed & played a game of cards. After the game was over I was brushing my teeth when Craig came running in & told me to look at how hard the wind was blowing. It looked like a hurricane. We heard a crash & ran to the dining room window to find that the trellis on our porch had fallen down. Next we watched our grill get picked up & thrown onto the porch. We stood there staring at the grill until the windows started to rattle & shake so hard we were afraid they were about to blow in. Without one word we both ran upstairs to get the kids. We spent the next half an hour sitting in our teeny-tiny downstairs bathroom with candles & flashlights since we had lost power. After that it pretty much blew over although the light show lasted for quite a while & our power didn't come on until 5 am. There is damage to both of our sheds & we sprung a leak in the kitchen, so now we're just waiting to hear from the insurance company. In the words of Micah, "It was a very naughty storm!"
I had just taken this photo of my favorite spot to read & drink my morning coffee.
