Day 117

The Morning After

What a night! I was in survival mode, huddled with my child on the floor of the hallway. Of course, she was having a blast with our Puzzle Party in the Hall! Before the real line of tornados came, we had some bad lightning that struck two trees in our backyard. It was so loud and bright that I honestly thought it had hit our house or back deck. It stripped almost all of the bark off of one tree and sent bark from the other tree shooting into our windows and back glass doors.

We have also learned that the lightning struck one of our air conditioners. Luckily, it was the one that controls the kitchen and Cucci Room ;). The one for the living room and bedrooms is fine. So now we're waiting on the insurance adjustor to come look at it so that maybe we can even get a new one!!!

Overall, we fared pretty well! As Joe Haynes (who I'll say definitely earned his money last night) was calling out roads right by ours as on the tornados' paths, I was terrified. But God kept us safe and brought David home safely through the entire thing as well! Praise God!
