Mother Nature has been in a sour mood Down South. Thankful for all those who came through the storms safely and prayers to those who suffered damage or are missing loved ones. The storms that occurred throughout the day on April 27th were the worst in history for our part of the country. The devastation is widespread and as always seems too much to comprehend the power of a rampaging storm with one neighborhood left untouched while another is ravaged. Our family, friends and neighbors did not sustain damage, other than the nuisance of some power outages and downed trees. Others were not as fortunate and I ask that you turn your thoughts and prayers their way.
I took this picture of one of the storms moving into our valley from the West, just after mid-day. The Weather people referred to this storm as Round 2. As you can see, it looks like a funnel cloud moving over the gap between the mountains. I had gone out to run an errand and was returning home, hoping to outrun the storm. I got home just as the heavy rains hit.
Remember to enjoy each day as the gift it is. Don't take a single moment for granted.
