Clear Skies At Last!
The storms that have brought so much death and destruction to the Midwest and the South over the past couple of weeks have paid us a visit or two as well. Last week 2 tornadoes touched down in the county to our north and while nobody was seriously injured over 400 homes were damaged or destroyed.
We had strong storms overnight and the wind was so fierce that it sounded like the roof was coming off. I was actually surprised to find no damage this morning. Though not as strong as overnight the winds are still kicking up. To illustrate, the camera wasn’t tilted when I shot the frame above……..
……the winds were so strong that the flagpole was actually swaying in the breeze!
The world is turning green around us so swiftly that it’s stunning.
Also stunning are the flowers springing up, seemingly overnight, everywhere you look.
I shot these tulips from the driver’s side window while waiting on a traffic light.
I’m going to have to talk to Laura about getting some bulbs for Mother’s Day. I’m sure Frankie will love them.
