Everybody OK?

Hoping that everyone is OK out there after this weekends ferocious weather.  Heard over 240 tornadoes touched down around the country.  Nothing unusual here in northern Maine - just a bit of snow and cold.

Re: Everybody OK?

OK here in IL but I have a 6" piece of the eve (sp?) swinging in the air off of our bedroom roof.  DH says he will go up & fix it.  Not sure that's a good idea.

We went away for one night to WI.  Supposed to go for the whole weekend but Fri. it was blowing so bad, raining, & lights flickering.  We knew we wouldn't enjoy ourselves worrying what was going on here.  It was just a little getaway as we hadn't celebrated our anniversary, or either of our birthdays.  When we left Sat. we ran into cold rain & snow.  Maybe should have gone south.  Of course, when we left on Sun. it was much nicer though colder than norm.

The only thing good about it was that I always feel bad it it's nice & people are working outside.  Makes me want to be home doing the same.  However, with this weather it was just a good day to curl up & watch TV or read. (Oh, alright.  I could have been spring cleaning!)

Re: Everybody OK?

It is funny you mention spring cleaning...as the storms were brushing past us Saturday afternoon, I kept myself busy with putting things away, getting every last dirty piece of clothign through the waser and drier, etc.  I even did some baking, too...guess I wanted to be ready if the power went out.

Even that makes no sense, since we have a good generator to run everything here.  Maybe I just needed to keep my mind occupied, so as not to stare at the TV reports and get even more worked up.

Re: Everybody OK?

Getting deluged with rain this morning.  Glad it isn't snow.  I hear they are having snow north of us.  Guess there won't be any field work done for awhile again.  Can't imagine those dealing with floods, tornadoes and fires.  I did have my DH go up and check the attic this morning for leaks, I shouldv'e had him go to the basement and check for wet floor too.  But the daffodils are sure pretty!
