Strange DayHi! How are you doing? Were you in one of the states hit by this weird storms? We had hoped to be home before it rolled through to finish mowing one portion of the yard. That didn't happen.
Around 3:30 the sky started to get cloudy and dark. Like really dark! It looked more like 8 than 4 out there. At 4:30 Xyra's cell phone screamed out an alarm noting "Imminent Extreme Weather until 5 PM, possible tornado." I didn't think it could get darker, but it did and the winds picked up. Franz called to say we should stay put. We weren't going anywhere. Xyra was on the phone with Xerox trying to get a printer sorted out. She warned him they could get cut off. And, they did. Man, does it get dark in her office when the power goes out. And loud. Back up batteries were beeping, the server backup battery was just plain screaming, the alarm sounded...
I couldn't do anything so I just watched the storm. Side note: these photos are dark, but the are supposed to be. By this time the storm had almost finished passing and I could see some clear sky coming.
I'm glad I had a stuffed animal I could hold.
How do you feel about storms? Is there something that helps keep you calm?
Be Safe, everyone!
