Storms, hoping they are almost over.....arrgghh

I've spent most of the eveing in the utility room! Bedford got hit by tornado, some homes down, haven't seen the pictures of it yet. Also Columbus has been hit twice tonight. Close call for Hope, son n law could see the rotation but it didn't come down to the ground. Had to call them because the sirens either don't work in Hope, or just were not working per the news. Have my computer in the utility room with me, so I can keep my family and friends who can't hear the sirens or have t.v.'s. Mass casulities in Bloomington, just not sure exactly what yet. Sounds like either mobile homes or semi's. News wasn't real clear.
Someone said there were hail the size of grapefruits, I've never seen hail that big before! Jeez! As far as here where I live, don't know if there is any damage or not, haven't heard anything at least tonight.
Wow! strong winds and lots of hail tonight! We are not even in our tornado season good yet, I'm sure dreading what can come. Right now we are only showing yellow instead of red now, so hopefully we can all relax. Still thundering in the distance. Oh! What a night!!!!

Hail May 25 2011 Indiana

Stormy weather coming again this evening, damage yesterday for folks here, safe that I know of

Being very watchful of the weather the last few days Yesterday, we had bad storms yesterday evening. Trees down and a few damaged homes. Semi overturned on the interstate. A few trees up rooted here and there, but overall everyone that I know of are safe. Many without power. My daughter's Mother in Law had trees down and couldn't get home. Folks cut trees so she could get home and was very lucky, tree fell and hit their deck, broke the rail and a big planter, but the house is o.k. and most important she is o.k.
I kept on the phone with my son who does not have t.v. until the worst was over. His neighbor had a little damage to the front of his house, but it can be fixed.
The news is showing more storms coming our way this evening, so we are watching the News and listening to the weather radio.
Prayers going out to those folks in Joplin, MI. Such devastation. Lot of people needing prayers right now!
They are saying even if you don't see a tornado, they are sometimes wrapped in rain.

Troubles poem brought a smile to my face and a little chuckle :O)

I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead and some come from behind.
But I've bought a big bat.  I'm all ready you see.
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!
~Dr. Seuss


I've had a lot of things to deal with lately, and while looking through poems and sayings, I came across this. I remember reading this to my children when they were little, and it meant more to me tonight than ever before.
It brought a smile to my face and a little chuckle :O) Just thought I would share :O)

Rain, Rain, Rain and more Rain!!!!

So tired of it raining. Our grass is like stepping on a sponge, soaked full. We don't need another flood here like we had a couple of years or so ago. Houses are still empty and ruined. Down south of us it is worse yet, and I hate to see the pictures after all this rain! Just thinking last summer our grass looked like straw, and we needed the rain soooo bad. I cannot get my self back into the stamp room. Can't seem to get motivated! I think a little sunshine might help. When it's raining you would think I would stamp more, not! Can't seem to be creative!!!
