Last night was just an ordinary night for me and my kids. We did our night routine and sent them on their way. I stayed up too late working on a blog post and other My Pink Stamper stuff. Around 1:00 am I settled down in my bed and decided to read for a few minutes when I heard the lightening and thunder begin. At first it seemed normal but then I heard sounds on my windows and the side of my house! I got up and checked out my front door and it looked like a tornado was hitting us!! I tried to wake my husband but he was really out (I'm known for overreacting). I then went to check our back yard and discovered that a huge tree had broken and was in our pool!! I woke him again and we both agreed to wake the children and bring then downstairs in case we needed to go to our shelter. Crazy part was that since this was not a tornado, the sirens were not going off. They should have! The storm died down and everyone went back to sleep but this is what we woke up to this morning.
I also woke up to my 4 year old saying "I'm ready to go to school!!"
Here is some of the destruction in my town.... Remember that this was NOT a tornado!! The damage is the same in some areas, though.
Hope you all have a GREAT day! My husband is actually looking forward to using our chainsaw to clean up our mess. He's only used it to help with tornado damage in another town. I'm ready to pull it out today, too, but Karlee thinks I should wait until someone who knows how to use it comes home. :)
