Leave it to Ohio to bounce all over the place....
Ice and Snow one minute and days later we're wearing shorts and tee's enjoying 75 degrees and sunshine....Course we are still wading through the muddy/water mess that used to be our yards.
The Storms have passed on by us but the winds remain. I'm sure when I go out tomorrow there will damage to survey or at least leftover remnants of 60-70 mile an hour wind gusts! I just pray Jophie and I stay secured to the ground. Seems our tie downs are only good for 60 and under. Eeeek!
I'm hoping I can get this typed up before the electric decides to flicker again. It's never really stayed off for any amount of time but rather flickers and then occasionally does go completely off then surging on and off for short a time before it settles back down. Our Wind warnings will last till 6 a.m...I just hope we do too. ;0)
Just after the storm passed through I noticed an oddball color outside. Typically we see that ominous greenish/yellow color which almost always has hail followed by more severe weather but, this time it was ORANGE! Sooo very odd! So much so I grabbed my camera and started snapping pictures. I honestly didn't think I was capturing what I was actually seeing but kept on snapping.
I was talking to one of my close friends Katy who I tend to call during bad storms. I'm really not sure exactly what she could do all the way from her house but, there's just something comforting about knowing someone else is actually listening and experiencing the same thing you are.
Anyway, she was snapping pictures as fast as I was so I'm anxious to see what she was able to capture. For now I'll share what I managed to get! These are really amazing! You can click them to see the full enlarged picture.
Orange Glow after the storm:
Can you spot the Eagle? At least I fairly certain it was an Eagle. I just happened to be snapping pictures and look up and there he was.
And this be our dear friend Boss Hog. :0) We are praying we don't have to use him on this dark windy night but, if we do he's ever so faithful chuggin right along doing his duty to keep us up and running! Those pictures were taken during our Ice/Snow storm which is why there are icicles hangin off him. At the moment we are a muddy soggy wet mess! :0)
I hope everyone avoids all these nasty storms and keeps their lights on! We're sure praying we do!
Hang on its gonna be a blustery ride! :0)
