Well, today is the day after our monsoon weather. When those tornado sirens went off yesterday I thought my heart was going to stop beating.

My beautiful flowers took quite a beating and twigs and branches are now littered throughout my yard, but... my husband and I are safe and God is good. No tornado. Whew!
Who would have ever thought I'd go through a monsoon in Colorado? Not I, that's for sure. We just don't have them here in Colorado. Not that I ever remember anyway. This is the first one I've been through. Well, that is not entirely true. We had one last week and it, too, was horrific. The only difference between this one and that one was this time we had hail the size of quarters and one of the tall cement bear statues in my yard got pitted. :-( 

Oh, and I've never seen such lightning like that before either. One strike after another, followed by super loud booms and rattling windows. The only other time I saw lightning like that was when I lived on the ranch in the mountains. Up there, we saw and felt the effect of a large lightning bolt and the boom was immediate. It had struck in the horse lot directly behind our house and killed two of the ranch horses. Scared the liver out of us adn broke our hearts.

I sure hope I don't have to go through anymore of these kind of storms. Not sure my heart can take them. *grin*

Anyway, just wanted to write that God is good and that He kept my family safe.

Thought I would attach a few pictures for you to see.

1. My bear statue. All that white is pits.

2. The hanging basket was full of beautiful blooms.

3. A picture of some of the branches/twigs dotting my yard.

4. That was daisies.

5. Those flowers used to stand up tall and beautiful, but now are droopy and broken.

6. A fun one. Underneath that bush is a little rabbit, sitting up on it's rump and cleaning itself after being drenched by the storm.

Thanks for stopping by.
Unitl next time...
See ya ~ ~ ~
