You Know It's Spring When.....

In the area I live you know it's spring when:
....the weather report states "10 degrees warmer away from the lake" have the flashlight, batteries, and your radio handy
....there's a spot in the interior of your basement, away from windows, ready in case of a tornado spend hours watching non-stop weather reports of a possible tornado and/or strong thunderstorms
And that is exactly what we did last night. The lightening was beautiful, I would have loved to stand outside and watch it, but I was afraid to. Our tornado siren went off twice last night but the storm quickly passed by us. We only got rain and lightening. I was able to go to bed at 10 and know it was essentially over for us. I will have to find out how my sister & daughter fared the weather. They live in different parts of the state. The silver lining is that we are finally experiencing upper 40's and even 50 degree temps. YAY!!!!!


  1. Yes, but it's supposed to get cold and possibly snow by this weekend! Arghhh!

  2. I live in the part where the storms split a lot.We hardly had anything here,some rain.In fact,it was not that much rain because the dogs water pail out back was not even over flowing.
