Scary Evening!

But don't worry... it's not D-related!

We just had some pretty severe storms here in the DFW area; a tornado or two (or three!), 70+ MPH wind gusts, power outages, and a fallen tree. When we inspected the tree a little closer, we could see it was charred! YIKES! Lightning struck our tree that sits a mere 15 feet from our house!

Elise handled the whole thing like a trooper; cheering on the thunder and lightning throughout the storm. We had one tense moment when we thought we were going to have to high-tail to the bathroom to take shelter, but in the end all was okay. Save for our tree, of course.

And, due to all the excitement, a bedtime BG of 250. But at least she had a good time, right?


  1. Hmmm....definitely DO NOT miss those tornados from growing up in the Midwest and most recently living in Tulsa!

  2. Amy, I live in Tulsa, and I also lived many years in Oklahoma City. It's very interesting sometimes.

  3. Glad you are all ok. We have had torrents of rain in MD, like you can't see through it. So sorry about your tree.:(
