Billings, MT High 81 Low 55
Last night we lived through the worst storm we have experienced in our five years on the road. Mother Nature and I really do need to have a talk because I am NOT happy with her.
We had about a 15 minute warning when the TV flashed the news that a severe storm was headed our way. Not much we could do except make sure everything was tied down or put away.
Wind – 70 mph. Rain – 1 3/4 inches in about 15 minutes. Hail – went on and on and on. I didn’t think it was ever going to stop. It wasn’t large hail and I don’t think we have much if any damage. Jim will need to get up on the roof today and check. But it was so noisy. I was sure it was destroying our rig and our truck. Me and the girls were scared.
The lightening was happening so rapidly that it was as bright as day. We could see the lightening for at least an hour after the storm moved east of us. They put up a 3-D image of the storm on the weather and that was an incredible sight.
Did not lose power which is a good thing. Our street flooded. There really and truly is a sidewalk under all that water.
We survived and actually got some sleep last night.
Today is my hubby’s birthday. I think I’ll let him make me breakfast to celebrate.
Janna took this picture of us and I really like it.
We’re going to have his favorite dinner – lemon pepper chicken wings with mashed potatoes and gravy and green beans. Lemon bars for dessert.
I love you Jim. You are my life and my world. Thank you for putting up with me for so many years.
