Storm 2011

With all the storms that have swept through the Southeast this spring/summer, God has been very merciful to our area. Several times, bad storms/tornadoes were headed right toward us and at the last minute either dissipated or changed directions.

Saturday night, we experienced pretty heavy rains, strong winds and some hail. And lots of thunder! We never lost power but it did flicker quite often. The rain swirling on the window looked like a carwash!

We were thankful for God's protection! Several large tree limbs fell in our yard--two just missed our front window. Also a lot of debris  in both the front and back yards and a leak in the master bedroom ceiling. Which we discovered when we went to bed Saturday night. :-(

 Front yard and roof.

 My compost bin is still standing!

Thankful for God's great protection; it could've been so much worse!

I'm so glad you were safe, Mary Ann! You're right, it has been a very stormy spring! Hope you can get the roof fixed soon.

We had a couple of bad storms move through over the weekend too. Our house is OK, but there is quite a bit of cleanup to be done at our church. Lots of big limbs were broken.
