Frightening Storm

Saturday, August 31, 2013

I have never seen such destruction in my life. We had a major storm go through last night - right in a 4-5 block area of our apartment. There was a gust of wind that was 75 MPH (a Hurricane 1 level). The downed trees right in front of my apartment building and a huge piece of an evergreen tree that fell right next to my building are unreal! This was one of the scariest things I have ever lived through in my life. My husband was not home - he was still at work - so I just huddled in my chair with a flashlight on my lap in case and chanted "I'm scared, I'm scared, I'm scared" over and over again until the storm passed. How we didn't lose our power I will never know.

  Aw, bless your heart! I'm so glad there wasn't any damage to you or your home. Mother Nature can sure be scary sometimes when she gets angry. I hope you get some sunshine for the next few days.
