No Power!

Hi everyone!

Last night we had a huge storm come through. Tornado warnings everywhere. We lost our power early in the evening. Most of the cities around us also lost power. Since it was seriously storming and the rain was smashing into our windows, we were unable to keep the windows open so, it got super hot in our home very quickly. After about 4 or 5 hours, it was insufferable so, we took a flashlight, threw clothes in a basket and emptied out out fridge as much as we could and headed up to our trailer.

So, that is where I am now. Well, that's not true. I had to drive to a local town and find an Internet hotspot. So, right now I am sitting at a truck stop writing this!

My brother just texted me and told me that our power is back on. Even though he and my parents are still without power and they have been informed it will probably be at least Monday or Tuesday before they will get power back.

Our campground is in the transition of getting a different Internet provider, so their is no service right now.

I just wanted to let you know so you would understand why I am not doing a lot of "visiting". All is good and I am just going to enjoy a couple of days camping and playing in the lake!

Hope all of you are having a wonderful weekend!

  9. I am popping over to snag your button for the giveaway! I will post on my sidebar. I get scared in storms. I am always fearful of lightening and thunder. I am glad that storm is passing over now. It has been terrible weather time everywhere this year. I am sorry you lost power. That is the worst. But if you don't have to suffer with too much heat it can be a fun adventure! Anne
