Monday afternoon the girls and I came home from shopping at Sam's to this...

You can imagine the damage it did to all the trees and plants.  My peonies took a beating.  I salvaged what I could and brought in the last few blossoms for us to enjoy.  ;D

There were 6 tornadoes that touched down just east of us.  I did see one of them driving back into town from shopping.  I didn't get a photo of it but this is what it looked like...

I know this may be a normal thing for some but it is not for me.  We've had 9 days straight of severe weather and tornadoes almost everyday and its kinda freaky.  I didn't grow up in an area with tornadoes and I didn't know Colorado had them when we moved here.  It's kinda freaky.

  3. Hey Jen, Thanks for commenting on my blog! Those tornados are erie (sp?)! Um, this would be a good reason to stockpile food. That way you don't have to go out to Sam's and get caught in a tornado or driving fast away from one! Be careful!
