No bad storms, or if there were, I slept through them, but for once when I woke up, it was thundering and I think I saw one flash of lightning, but I went right back to sleep, so it wasn't bad at all, and no limbs, PLUS we had power this morning, so that was a huge PLUS.
It's been raining off and on today, so it's not as bad as they'd predicted, unless that 5" is going around us, or expected for tonight. I'm hoping it's just going away, period and no one gets that.
Some friends of our family's got 6" of rain the other day, they live up in Nekoosa, WI, and she said it was still raining up there, I feel so sorry for them. That's a LOT of rain in one storm.
Yesterday I walked over to the front door and was just getting there, and looked out and saw 2 visitors coming up to the birdbath just outside the door. I just about cried, I never expected them, and what was so special was this.
We have a "sunflower solar light" outside that my Mom gave me in memory of my Dad. It's right out by the birdbath, where I put it. The Sunflower was my Dad's favorite flower, and the bluebird was his favorite bird. Well...as I walked over to the front door, this is what i was greeted with, coming over to the bird bath...and the male sat right on top of the Sunflower. I know they were sent from God..and my Dad.
