After the Storm - Prayers To Friends


Tuesday the humidity levels raised dramatically here, the dry line hung just to the west of our house on Tuesday.  Then around 6:15PM the winds picked up, the dry line moved to the east of us and our temperatures dropped dramatically.  Then between 2 – 3 AM all hell broke loose.  We had heavy winds, temperatures dropped to 28 degrees, lightning, thunder, and hail.  At around 6AM the ice started to form on trees, and the ground, and then it started to snow.  Temperatures rose to 32 degrees later in the day. The weather finally passed here, temperatures today were 32 degrees this morning, and 56 degrees this afternoon, the sun is out, and the moisture on the ground is starting to dry up. 

We weathered the storm okay and we were totally prepared for anything to happen.  The only damage, a few shingles on the roof needing replaced, and trash that blew in onto the property needs picking up.

The weather people here are now telling us to expect another cold front, and bad weather end of next week. 

Thank you to all my friends for the kinds words about being careful while the storm came through. 

Now, I’m sending prayers and warm thoughts to all of my friends who are in the pathway of this horrific storm.  Please be careful, and hunker down.

    1. HL,

      I'm very happy there were no tornadoes here too. The ice has melted, it didn't stay to long. I'm glad you just had rain and cold. I pray for those people who touched and lost everything in this storm.

  4. We have a severe storm heading our way with damaging winds and possible tornadoes. Should be here just before 10PM...I hate these that come at night. Can't see anything, only hear terrible things until the lightening flashes.

    1. Mamma Bear,

      Please be careful and hunker down. I hate when tornadoes run through an area at night, it's scarey.

      Give us updates on things later, we will want to know everything is okay. Sending prayers for you and the family.

    1. Stephen,

      Crazy as it sounds, hubby and I both have run outside in our PJ's to watch storms off in a distance or rolling in toward our home. Usually when we do this we fail to grab the camera.

      Were all safe here tonight, the storm has passed. Expecting more the end of next week.
