A Rip, Roarin' Storm for Darcie...

Darcie loves a good storm and I thought of her when I saw this one rolling in. This was in the middle of the day and it was a real hum dinger. The sky turned completely black and the rain topped off my new pond in my flower garden- about 2". Wish you could feel the wind blowing- we could barely stand and finally had to get inside as there was a fair amount of lightening and we are the only thing of any height out here on the prairie. We did have some electric worm it's way into our phone lines- hate it when that happens! I do go through those little phone line surge protectors- several each year. You don't have one? I have black scorch marks on my walls around the phone jacks. But those little surge protectors certainly do the job- discovered them the hard way after losing a modem in a summer storm. There was a little bit of hail, but nothing to worry about. Sounded nice on the tin roof.

GF and Evie love storms,too, 'cause it reminds them that "God is in control of the 'wo-eld'"! Beautiful and AWESOME.

I love storms, but I probably wouldn't like the lines getting fried.

Your garden. Oh, my gosh. That looks like a whole farm to me. I can almost taste the sweet corn. Wow.

Stay safe.

What a cool pic, Nines! All for me? (Are those your kiddos? Or am I seeing things? The headlights against the darkened sky look so eery...love it!)

I feel so guilty that I love a good storm. Someone usually pays the price...this I know so well.
