More rough weather & Effects from yesterday

Well were havin’ some more strong storms tonight. The ‘Weather Guy’ on the news says to keep your weather radio on through out the night. Great ours is at home in FL, cause “we didn’t need that”! Matter o’ fact we have two at home!!

Linda’s cousin Cheryl and her husband Kent just signed the papers on a home they bought for a rental less than two days ago. The storm that went through Friday night with all the tornado warnings did a bit of damage around the city.

Cheryl's House with Tree

That’s Cheryl & Kent’s new rental on the left with the tree lying on it after Fridays storm. The tree struck both houses when it fell & they sustained a bit of damage but it doesn’t seem structural. Once the tree was removed they secured a tarp over the the roof to protect it.There were a multitude of trees around that area of this small city that were felled by the storm. The City also lost about 15 utility poles due to downed trees and some just snapped in the wind. The fire station down the road scattered their trucks around the area so they wouldn’t be all caught at the station should damage occur there.

I’m wonderin’ if maybe we should pull up stakes and go somewhere else fer’ a while, at least till things calm down. Course I don’t know where that would be at this point. I know I’ve mentioned the temps have been runnin’ hot-hot here lately, but after tonight the highs are supposed to be 60’s with lows in the 40’s. Maybe the cooler weather will calm down the ‘wild weather’.

Well off to bed for me and I hope we’re not “Off to see the Wizard” tonight while we sleep.

Hope to see ya’ down the road as we’re;

Dancin’ on the Wind.
