What a mess!

I spent the day trying to clean up from the tornadoes on Wednesday night.  I’m exhausted.  My yard looks like a lake once again and my new chicken planter was busted along with a few other planters.  I managed to get them replaced and I’m still in the process of clean up.  We have a fence to repair and the rose ladder needs fixing once again.  I think we should probably have someone out to look at the roof too.

But all in all, we were very lucky.  We didn’t lose any trees like so many did.  The damage was pretty much confined to the yard and not the house.  We are all still safe even though John was on the road (in a little hybrid Civic) during the worst of the storms – he even saw a tree up rooted in front of him and power lines going down beside him.  The kids were home alone and were magnificent.  They did exactly what they were supposed to do.

More clean up tomorrow, but I hope to make some real posts then with some pictures.  Then it’s off to Broken Arrow, OK for my high school reunion so what doesn’t get cleaned up tomorrow will just have to wait.  G’night!
