Bye, Bye Swing
So it seems we are getting some wicked weather our way tonight. Right now all the TV stations look like this...

And our trees out front look like this. I braved the storm to go outside and take a photo after the first round came through - even though it is advised that we all should be in our basements, I am sitting her blogging. Annie Kate cried when she came home and saw the damage.

Off to the basement!

Oh so sad! WE had a strange storm on Saturday night. But no damage that I know of. I hope you stay safe!

Anne said...

WOW! I was in training when the storm went through tysons and we watched the sky go from clear to absolutely no visibility. Pretty scary. I'm a little curious to see how my house held up. Apparently a tornado touched down just a few miles away from me.

Hannah said...

Oh man- so scary! Hunker down and try to have fun just hanging out with the family.

Kristi-My name is Natalie Perry, and I stumbled over to your blog from Chanel Palmer's. I barely knew you in Nola--as you guys were leaving when my husband and I got there. I think we spoke just once and maybe I saw you once or twice at Jenny's house. Anyway, just wanted to pass along my compliments to your blog! I just started blogging a couple weeks ago, so am feeling quite GREEN right now. But yours is darling--you seem to be the master of blogging! haha Have a great day-Natalie
