* OK, so everyone knows I am a photo/ video stealer. I stole this from Hewy. This is Helena yesterday, in the rain.
Our beautiful city just got pounded!
We are soaked here! It started raining on Saturday and has not stopped yet. Goodness the trees are going to float out of the ground! We are ready for Fay to be on her way!
I must share this story with all of you. I was in Publix yesterday when a funnel cloud went over the top. The power went out. Lots of "dramatic" noise....................................... LOL
Let me just tell you that you have not grocery shopped until you have done so with 2 children, in the dark, with a tornado. Yea...... good times!
Mother and Daddy made it in yesterday despite the tornadoes and storm. The children have been on cloud nine and playing with all the "happies" Chief and GrandMaMa brought! I absolutely love when my parents come. It is so very special to the children, well to us all, but especially the children. I love hearing them giggle and squeal with delight as they pull into the driveway.
Orren, Olivia and I made Chief's favorite dessert........ Chess squares. He did not want a birthday cake so we surprised him with those. Everyone helped make them! Tonight we will be grilling his ribs that he loves with potato salad, broccoli casserole and corn on the cob! YUMMY. We are glad Chief is about to have a birthday.
To all of our friends and family along the Gulf, please watch Gustav and if you need to seek refuge, our home is your home. We have lots of beds and room! We even have a generator!
Our prayers are with you.
Today is the BIG election day in Helena! Good luck to our dearest friend Hal! We will be casting our vote for you shortly.
I guess that is it for today.
May God keep you all safe and surrounded in love!
