The Storm of '08

Right before the 4th of July I am at home with a 4 year old, a 2 year old, and a 1 month old and this storm comes out of nowhere! The kids handled it really well. They were more amazed by all of the action. They got a little nervous when the lights went out but when they each got their own flashlight, they were happy as can be. When I saw the trees literally blowing sideways, I thought for sure we were going to be in trouble. But, we were lucky and nothing did happen to our house. And when the first storm stopped a whole new one came through minutes later. It was crazy.
Nana and Boppa did lose a tree but their house was fine. These are pictures of some houses a few "blocks" from us. It literally looked like a tornado went through this area. it is amazing how different it was from where we live. But, from what we saw, none of the houses were damaged thank goodness. We just had to deal with no electricity for a couple of days. A small price to pay!
