last night

There were big storms in the area for the second evening in a row. The sky looked like this:

So after watching the weather reports and hearing them say the name of our town twice... I did what any good mom would do. I put some emergency supplies in the bathroom (our house doesn't have a basement - so this is where we'd go).

I made Nick put shoes on and briefly considered grabbing our birth certificates and marriage license and stuff like that. Which reminds me, I need to put all those important documents in one place. Possibly even a safety deposit box at the bank. Overboard? Maybe, I guess... but if we had been huddled in our bathroom we'd have been glad to have that Gatorade and hand-crank flashlight.

Even better, we're supposed to be in for it again tonight. Currently:

Sigh. I think I dislike rain even more than snow at this point.

Anyhow, we are all still here, after much bullshit weather and even more bullshit medical problems in the family. I also wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who's been keeping us in your prayers! I love you all.

Be back again soon...
