We've had some pretty severe weather here
the past few weeks. We are lucky - where
we live we don't have to worry much about
natural distasters. But the past few weeks,
we've had quite a few tornado warnings,
high winds and severe thunder storms.
Lots of people have gotten hit by lightning.
I snapped a few pictures the other night of
a storm coming through. Sometimes it's
crazy because the sun is shining, and we're
getting rain/hail, etc. at the same time?!
Believe it or not, these 2 pictures
were taken at the exact same time,
just different parts of the sky.
Eric is a fireman, so when
his monitor goes off that there
is a tornado warning out, he gets
out his binoculars and watches for
So guess who has to imitate Daddy??
Here's Cam checkin out the sky too :>
So lots of thunderstorms brings
lots and lots of rain! We've been
blessed with more than enough rain
the past 2 weeks.
We took a walk down to our dam yesterday
to check out the falls and see how high the water
had risen. We'd been hearing it was quite high.
And it was! Probably hard to tell on the
pictures just how high it was.
This is a picture standing above the falls.
This is of the spillway back behind the
falls. When the river runs over, it goes
onto this cement spillway and down
into the river under the falls. I think I've only
ever seen it once like this in my lifetime.
It was well over our ankles.
Usually the water is well below
these tree stumps.
Here's Eric, Olivia
and Cam checking out
the falls. Pretty amazing!
