severe weather in the mid-west


we've had some crazy weather the past few days. luckily no tornadoes...just tornado watches. anyway, last night we had the craziest thunderstorm i've ever witnesses. around 5:30pm i went outside to "collect" my kids and their bikes. it wasn't raining...just really cloudy and muggy. then there was a huge clap of thunder and the rain started pouring down instantly. there was no way to get inside fast enough, so the kids and i stayed outside and played in it for awhile since we were already drenched! it's funny...i had been pretty ornery the whole day, and just feeling "blah", but after playing in the rain i felt better!!! it was alot of fun, and not soon after all the neighborhood kids were out there with us splashing and playing in the mud. the video is one i did last night too, but around 9pm. i've never seen lightning like this before. it was continuous, and there weren't seperate thunders for each lightning...if that makes sense!! the thunder was just continuously rumbling without a break...you can't hear it on the video though.

Yikes! That is beyond weather for us poor desert rats. Glad you're okay. p.s. I still need a Scentsy catalog, please. I have remained loyal to my favorite distributor. :)

Wow. That is bad weather. What a fun mom to go out and play in the rain with your girls. I never do stuff like that. I need to step it up a notch. The video was cool.
