Monday was so windy you could barely walk out the door, the temperatures climbed throughout the day.Late afternoon brought storm warnings for our area, turning into a tornado watch. I must admit I get a little spooked with storms. As I watched a little T.V. and visited on the phone with a friend her weather alert kept going off. She asked me if I had seen the lightning. I replied, "no". We felt it best to get off the phone. I took a walk out to the garage as I was standing out there the doors started rattling like I've never heard before. Then the sound was overhead, the sound of a freight train, I moved instantly inside afraid it was going to take the tree just outside the garage and push it inside and hit my truck. Then the lights go out.
I could see through the lightning strikes my tree line was hit pretty badly. The next morning after a very sleepless night this is what I found.
The trees were split torn and ripped out of the ground, the entrance into the shop was blocked.
I thank the Lord above for keeping me safe along with everyone else. With all the damage reported there was only 1 major injury.
And..... they're calling for 1" - 3" of wet snow on Saturday only in Missouri.
Wishing all of you a super weekend.
