Storms

We actually had a super cell storm here yesterday. It was really wild and strange all at the same time. We don’t normally get those types of storms here. Major storms are usually confirmed to Nor’Easters and tropical storms, if not hurricanes.

The tornados touched down in places all around us but we were not affected, thank goodness! Because DH was up at work and I was at my job and we were about 25 miles from home and were so worried the whole way driving home about what we would find when we got there, mostly we were worried about the dogs.

There were others that were not so lucky. Some people lost nearly everything, houses were severely damaged, some business just not even there anymore. They think the biggest tornado to touch down was an F4, we just don’t get those here, it is amazing in a totally scary way. At least one funnel cloud made land fall off the water and damaged some cars. We do get those from time to time.

My heart goes out to all the people who lost so much yesterday, especially in Suffolk.

Today is a day for counting our blessings.

I am so sorry for you all. I am grateful that you were unhurt. And, of course, the pups.

Glad the tornados didn't come your way. I hate having them here in Virginia.

I'm so glad you are all ok and so sorry for those that lost so much. We get those storm cells pretty often in Spring and its always nerve racking.

Your right. I think Gus and Rosie would get along just fine. If your other dogs are more hyper then Abby would love them too :) She's not the lay about the bed type of dog.
