What a morning…..

Hi blog friends,

I sure hope everyone is safe this morning.

Sending prayers to all the people down south whom have endured these horrible storms.

The nasty storms came through Northern VA starting at 3:30 am this morning and I flew out of bed in fear. I was home alone by that time, because my boyfriend leaves for work at 2:30.  At about 4:15am the winds got intense and I could hear the sound of a train coming. The house actually moaned! This 100+ year old farm house has withstood many storms and this one couldn’t get it either. A few miles from me in Bayse they’re reporting 4 large chicken houses were leveled. No reports of people being hurt, but I feel bad for the poor animals in them.

I don’t know who peeved Mother Nature off but I wish they would apologize so all this nasty weather would stop! 

It’s calm here for the time being, but they are still forecasting more bad stuff later today.

Please be safe and seek shelter if these storms come your way. They truly are horrible!!

Blessings, Jean

  4. I am glad you are safe Jean, it certainly was a scarey night. Tornado warnings everywhere. My electricity just returned at 11:30, I am getting me a battery operated radio and more flashlights. We used to never get tornado's in this area, take care. Hugs, Lecia

  5. Glad to hear that you are safe. We got the high winds here last night too. It sounded like our roof was going to come off...very scary. I didn't sleep much last night. We have family in Ringgold, GA and they got hit with a tornado last night, but everyone is ok. I sure wish Mother Nature would get happy again real soon!!
