Dd and I were on the road for six hours today, to parents house to check mail, tehn walgreens, then Beauty Academy for haircuts, then lunch, then Big Lots for gatorade powder for her, then Krogers. Back home, so happy that the temps dropped to the high 80's.. Yesterday we had a very severe thunderstorm(we all think a tornado touched down near here) with trees on houses, cars, in the streets, power is still out to over 5,500 homes in just our county(400 square miles).
We lost power for a nanosecond, just long enough to have to reset a couple clocks. We were blessed to have no damages or have hail hit here.. it was quarter sized,, neighbors huge canopy was uprooted and flew over their 20X40 pool, eight foot fence, DD car and landed five feet from our porch. Visibility was three feet in the rain. I thought I heard the train coming down the tracks, it was not a train...
26 days until vacation!! I hope I float across Lake Superior into Canada on my pool floatie thingie. I will take a picture o fit,, nobody else has seen ones like ours..!! I am too lazy and cheap to get a passport to visit Hadydabur in Goderich,Ontario, fellow Sparker,, so I will try to paddle my way across the pond..
