Trial Run For The Wedding
Around 3 or 4 AM this morning, we had the scariest thunderstorm I think we've ever, ever had.
There was so much thunder and lightning all rolling over each bang, boom and flash, one couldn't tell where they began and ended. It was like being inside a huge bass drum.
Just when I thought it'd settled down, a thin sound/blue flash zapped through the room---I screamed, Roxie yelped!
I somehow got her to the stairs and we both got down them before the next BOOM! We sat in the downstairs, shaking and quaking as it all started again.
It felt like the world was coming to an end, right then and there.
Today, schools are closed or delayed all over the western, central areas of Va---
Much later---lunchtime---12 o'clock news is showing farm after farm with destroyed barns, sheds and equipment.
Some are surely tornado damge, others are from huge winds and hail.
Surprisingly, they think livestock is safe.
As bad as it was here last night, it's nothing compared to what they went through in in Alabama, Louisiana and other states.
I can't believe the destruction I just saw on the lunchtime news.
I hope everyone here is OK and safe!
