Storm 2009

Friday night our little hometown was hit with a HUGE storm. The three of us were doing some shopping at Wal.mart and half way through our shopping trip we heard rain falling down HARD on the rooftops, so we knew right away that we were going to be getting very wet!
This is a picture I took out the car window on our way home!
Water was everywhere, all over the roads and the fields were turning into small lakes. We got home and changed into some dry clothes and watched as the storm continued to roll through.....it was crazy! Around 10:00 we lost power, that was interesting to say the least. With a newborn at home and no way to warm up bottles we realized just how lucky we are to have electricity! Thank you Benjamin Franklin (glad I decided to google that; I first typed Thomas Edison!)
Here are some more pictures from the next morning.

as you can see there has been a lot of damage here in the last few days. Luckily for us the worst of it was 24 hours without electric but as you can imagine many weren't so fortunate. Please be in prayer for the families dealing with losses and damage.

Glad to hear everyone is okay! That would be interesting with a newborn, when he's older he'll think losing power is an adventure:)

Things like that really make you appreciate the convenience of modern technology, don't they?

We went through the same thing when Cole was just 1 week old. Andi it was in late October in the Northeast so I was most worried about keeping my little lovebug warm!
