More crazy weather

Whew, what a crazy day it has been here! I thought we were in the clear after the huge storm we had early yesterday evening, but it turns out that wasn't the case. We finally got our power restored around 10:30 last night, only to be pummeled throughout the night by storm after storm.

Thankfully they weren't as severe as the first one, but we had some more wind damage and a whole lot of rain. Elise woke us up at about 1:30 in the morning after some big thunderclaps. When we checked her BG it was a whopping 359! My husband settled her back to sleep and she stayed asleep the rest of the night; waking up with a BG of 157. Nice!

So this morning I thought we were done, and decided to go to an indoor playtime at our rec center. Just as I arrived and walked to the door, the heavens open up and the sky once more was lit up by the most amazing lightning display. You could not see for all the water that was pouring down.

Usually it only rains that way for about 20 minutes, then lets up. But not this time. It just kept raining and raining and I actually was worried that I wouldn't be able to go home, which REALLY freaked me out because I didn't bring food for Elise's lunch and her NPH was set to peak around noon. I checked her BG and she was 157 (two hours after her shot), which is a nice number, but we usually see numbers in the high 200s at that time in the morning. I rummaged through the diaper bag and found some cheerios for her to munch on.

Finally, around 11:30, it let up enough for me to run to my car. I could actually see some blue sky, but inexplicably the deluge started again as I drove home. I was amazed my car didn't float away! I made it home, checked Elise's BG and she was 61. Made it home just in time! Note to self; be better prepared next time and bring food, just in case!
