There was a tornado a mile down the road from us. That was probably about the time the RV was a'rockin'. Wheeee, we're rockin'! <nervous grin> Then I found out this evening that there was another tornado to the other mile to the right of me. The other one was to the left of me. Mr left Tornado lifted someone's paddle boat & shoved it nicely into a tall tree. Channel 2 news was there when we drove by it when we went out to run errands this afternoon. So no one told Mr right Tornado that Christmas is over & that paddle boats are NOT really ornaments! Mr right Tornado made a lady get all scared. She grabbed her dog & sat in her bath tub with it. She said her doors inside of her house were all creeking & making noises. That would be scary, but when done, no harm done to her or her little dog. But there was another Tornado by hwy 6 that did damages to a few homes. Fortunately, our tornados are more rare & aren't huge like midwest tornados are! But it still would scare me if one crossed my path! Or wiped out my path....yikes! Hurricanes, I know when they are coming. I can prepare. Tornados & fires, no warning, no time to react & prepare. So anyhow, after I've just bored ya'll to tears, or a long nap, here are two photos of the flooded side yard, which did recede well later in the day.
And here are two videos. During & then the aftermath. I sure AM GLAD that the plastic gods were here for me & kept that plastic down! Whew!!!
Now I can't put Feather out in the kennel because if she peed in it, wouldn't that like peeing in a pool?
This video below is what it's like inside of the RV during such a storm. Take note of the plastic! Yay!
This is the outside area awhile after the storm.
I'm very, very, very, very, very grateful that Ellie, the RV is ok after her bath by nature. Actually, she's wearing a bit of nature now due to the bath...pine needles anyone? Can't they be used for some kind of craft? No? Oh well, ok, Ellie will proudly wear them then. (Don't tell her Christmas is over, in fact, she's still wearing her inside decs).
Just saw something funny in a movie on tv. A silly comedy with Jamie Lee Curtis. She mentioned to one of the characters something about that character's...um, character about her marrying her own brother. That character said "But he's not my brother. I mean, he was, but he's not now. He's my husband!" teehee, struck me funny.
