Storms...storms...storms....and no power

Hi bloggy friends...today I am without power because of the
wicked storms that once again roared through last night. Our power went out at 10:30 pm Wednesday evening and
estimated time of restoration is 12 am on Friday.

Right now we are running on generator power {thank God for that}, but only certain things in the house
are hooked up to it...the important things...
THE COMPUTER...the refrigerator, THE COMPUTER,
the freezer, THE COMPUTER, the water...lol.
Actually I had to run an extension cord around
robin hood's barn to get the computer to an outlet
where there is power.

We heard on the tv news last night right before our power
went out that a tornado was spotted near Frontier
and that is just up the road a bit...maybe five or six miles.
Not very far at all...my brother
lives very close to there. I need to make some phone calls
asap and see what happened.

So for now...I won't be in blogland much! Have a super wonderful day each and every one of you!! Blessings~

We have had some horrid weather here in Michigan this past week huh? The town near me (Whitmore Lake) lost it over the weekend. Last night was pretty fierce and I can only image it hit your side of the state pretty hard. Keeping fingers crossed that you are restored soon! Thank goodness for generators! :)

Sandie it is a hardship to be without power, as we are so use to having it. I do hope all is well with your family and things get back to normal. Your flowers are soooooooooooooooooo lovely. Sheila

Sandi... Hope you have your power back... I thought of you several time during the storm and knew you were quite close to where things were very intense... We spent the time in the basement watching the storms as they passed on TV. The storms are too close for comfort... Darn old heat anyway... Glad you are safe...

Glad everyone is safe and that you have a generator to help out. I'm sure many don't. HOpe the weather clears soon. I guess we are in for some wild storms when we are in the States this summer. Seems like it is crazy everywhere. Take care! Tammy
