The Aftermath From The Storm

We had quite an eventful day today.

My sister got here with her 3 kiddos around 2:30pm.

By 3:30 we were all piled in our secret hideout.  Yup, all 6 kids and 3 adults.
I'd been tracking the storm warnings all morning long, knowing that they were headed our way.

When the Emergency warning came up we knew it was time to wake Micaiah up from his nap and pile under the stairs.

We grabbed a big box of goldfish, knowing that full tummy's give us happy hearts.
To keep our minds occupied, so as not focused on the noises above (and the air pressure popping our ears),  we opted to obnoxiously loudly sing songs like "Deep And Wide" and our own rendition of Veggie Tales "God Is Bigger Than The Boogie Man Tornado."

We made it out really good.  We had someone's siding in our front yard, sticks and limbs and toys blown all over.
 Our neighbors had trees and fences down.  We were without power for about 5 hours, and were shocked when we actually got power because this...

...is what was all around our area.

Josh took these pictures while out with a friend while helping neighbors remove trees and help with various other things.


We were very thankful to hear from all our friends and family we knew and all the neighbors we checked on were fine too...
