Hey Mug.  The weather you thought I would get in the past few days that I said wasn't going to happen has arrived.  I missed 5 weather alerts last night because I accidentally turned the volume on my phone to zero.  Right now we are under a flood warning and tornado watch.  The rain is coming down, the wind is blowing and once in a while we have a really big blow where the trees whip back and forth in the wind.

I enjoy watching stormy weather.  I wish I had a front porch so I could sit there and watch it.  Last time we had a big blow no rain came with it and I was able so sit in the pasture and watch it.  It blew one of my Mimosa trees down and my neighbor lost a pine tree, but no damage.  Obviously, I hope I don't have a tree come down on the house.  That would be a bit too much excitement, besides even with insurance it would be costly.
Always move forward. Never look back.

.....be safe....it's amazing the amount of rain associated with this system........I'll bet you'll have more than a few road closures too... huh

....hang in there, Liz...
Even duct tape can't fix stupid ... but it can muffle the sound...and zip ties, properly applied, can reduce the movement!

It's been quite still for a couple of hours.  I hope we get a second wave.  I know that normal people are afraid of bad weather with wind and rain but it excites me.

More than enough.  But I'm not going to complain unless I go outside and find damage to the house from the storm last night.

just when I think the rain is finally over a band comes in and it starts all over again.  It's just drizzling right now.  Oh...no damage.
