Update: Saturday morning.
It was our turn last night with the storm. We are fine and praise God very easy clean up.
Carol from Charli and Me has passed this award to me ( and Tommy)
and we are just tickled pink. Carol has a terrific blog and if you haven't visited, you need to! It is fun, thought provoking and the pictures of Charli will lift your spirits up. Many, many thanks, Carol. I so appreciate it!
I appreciate everyone that stops by and leaves a comment. I enjoy all your blogs and would like to pass this along to all my blogging buddies. I know not everyone likes receiving an award this way. Those of you that do, Please take this one for your blog. It really is coming from my heart!
We have been praying for those affected by Gustav and those that may be affected this weekend as it rolls in. Little did I think we would have our own version last night. Three monsoon storms came into the valley and really did some major damage. Thousands are without power now as the power poles broke into match sticks. There was hail, winds in excess of 85 miles an hour and so much damage. Radar reported that winds could have been 100 miles an hour in areas. The temperature even dropped 30 degrees within a 2 hour span. We were very fortunate that we had just a little wind. My heart goes out to everyone affected.
About 12 years ago, we had a micro burst
rip through our neighborhood. At the time, I had a 2 story house and it was hit hard. My son had been in the hospital for 10 months and had only been home for 2 weeks when the storm hit. His bedroom was destroyed when that part of the roof was ripped off. The storm happened in August and it wasn't until March that all the work was completed. I never thought living in AZ I would go through anything like that. My early years were spent in Mi and we always had tornado warnings and watches. It was part of life.
God bless all those in the Phoenix area that have been hit hard. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.
Those of you that may be dealing with Gustav, know that your blogging buddies are holding you up in prayer.
I hope everyone has a safe Holiday weekend. I will be "flitting" in and out and hope to visit all of you throughout the weekend.
Happy Labor Day.
hugs to everyone!
