Texas Storms

Wednesday night it stormed. BIG TIME.

Tornado sirens went off, lightning cracked and tree limbs went flying down the street like tumbleweeds. John and I gathered the dogs and hung out in a closet during the worst of it. (John spotted the funnel cloud.) We lost electricity.

After the worst of it was past--we sat and played cards by candlelight. John taught me how to play Euker. (Later, we decided to drive around and assess the damage and wound up at Nancy and Peter's for wine,stories, and iPhone charging.)

When we went home, the electricity was still off. (Lynette-the-Cowgirl saved our life with a sound machine that runs on batteries!!!) When the storms kicked up again in the night, our dog, Lucky, ran into the closet. (Poor girl, she's terrified of thunder and I guess realized from our earlier action that it was a safe place.)

In the morning, Nancy gave me a wakeup call and I did my hair and makeup at Courtney-the-Acoustician's. I'm happy to have friends who live close and share!

That's crazy that you lost power and Courtney and I didn't! By the way, you're welcome over here anytime. The night of the storm Anna wanted to sit on the back porch and "watch the rain" - I told her our dinner might blow away! I got a little nervous with Ben out of town, but thankfully we only lost power for a few minutes and now we don't have to run our sprinkler for a few days!
