Yesterday, our new couch was delivered. Anne looks so happy with it! Later though, we would be eating dinner huddled in the basement, sitting in the dark. As you can see, the day started out all sunny and bright, but by the evening it had turned stormy, with thunder, lightning, hail and tornadoes. I had started rewatching the movie Twister, for mood music. We sat in the basement and let the storms roll over us. We watched the local weather news on my iPhone and waited for the red tornado boxes to move on east. While down there, we lost power, but it was only out for less than an hour. It is still drizzling today, so I have not done a complete walk around, but there does not seem to be any damage to the house. I guess that we were lucky again.
