The Storm!

So last wed night, I went to Andy's house. And then a storm started.. and then there was a blackout! but I managed to go to bed.. then as I drove back to my house in the morning, there were leaves and tree limbs on the road.. and I noticed that my strawberry plant looked like someone had punched it repeatedly. Some of my peaches fell :( This makes me sad as it takes a long time to grow a peach and I still haven't had any from that tree.
My hydrangea was messed up.

But other units were worse off, units with skylights had it broken, and the west facing windows, 6 out of 8 were broken. Not only their windows were broken, but so were the blinds. Broken glass everywhere.

People's cars have tiny little dents. Apparently the hail was bigger then a golf-ball, almost baseball size in my neighborhood. I was lucky that my car was at Andy's. 

Utility poles and trees were on the ground. It's amazing how strong nature is. 


New wall decoration

New wall decoration, originally uploaded by danceandgeek.

A birthday present from mlc! It's really cool, even though it was a pain to put up because the borders of the umbrella were different from the umbrella itself.. and I wasn't sure it would be good.. but I think I'm growing to like it! It's whimsical. And that's where I'm at in home decoration right now.

Oh, and that's my new used TV from pboyd04.
