X is for X-Treme weather

Good morning everyone!  I write this  morning with a very thankful heart.  I know you all have heard the horrific stories of the horrible tornadoes that have hit Arkansas, Mississippi and Alabama the last few days.  Those storms were supposed to move in here overnight and this morning.  

I hate stormy weather, especially when it comes in during the night.  They had been warning about this system for several days and had everyone on edge.  Early yesterday evening, several storms came in ahead of the main line and caused us to be under a tornado warning. Hubby was working late.  Darbee and I were at my aunt's house.  They said there was a tornado on a road right near our house.  Thankfully, it didn't get bad and we were spared.  A friend who lives less than 1/2 mile from my house took this picture and posted it on Facebook.

Wow!  We were really blessed.  

There was some damage about 30 minutes from us but nothing here.

The storms that came thru during the night were just thunderstorms.  They weakened away as they moved into our area.  

There is supposed to be another round tonight and I hope they do the same.  

I hope all of you have been safe and spared of the x-treme weather.

Until next time....


  1. YesI too have a thankful heart this morning Holly. Sending up prayers for those who lost loved ones and their homes. We were truly blessed. AGAIN. Love you

  2. The same here Holly. It was horrific all around us. So thankful you all are safe as well.

  3. I was thinking about you and your mom..thankful that you are safe. I hate storms. We are expecting some bad weather tonight. One thing I hate about Spring. Janice

  4. Glad to hear that you all are okay and your mom & dad too. My sister is visiting her daughter in Mississippi and they all had to go into the bathroom during a tornado last night. My niece sat in the bath tub with her little girls...and her husband and my sister sat on the floor. They took the mattress off of one of the girls bed's just incase they need to protect themselves from flying objects. What a scary night it was!! We have some storms right now in Ohio, but nothing like what you guys got.
