The Storm
Oh boy...what a storm and then another storm and yet another storm predicted for today.
A portion of our basement flooded last night due to a downspout that worked itself free; and rain was pouring in from the side door making a pool of the landing inside. We scrambled using everything and anything we could to sop up the mess - sheets, towels, blankets, our clothes - anything. All that has been washed and dried and the dehumidifier is working overtime.
All around town, the tops of street lights are scattered everywhere, along with other debris. Huge limbs of trees have been broken. I'm thankful our two big trees, one front and one back, can bend.
I don't like electrical storms, even looking from the inside out!

What a loud storm it was! Our dog went crazy, poor thing.
So glad your trees are okay!
