Blustery Day?

I started this this movie clip as a whim, a bit of humor to add to the blog. That was about 10:00 a.m. and we didn't have any electricity. Looks like the joke was on me...Blustery day nothing!!! They were high winds, apparently up to 60 miles an hour. Whew! The storm not only took out the electricity, it took down many trees. Limbs and branches were everywhere. Little did we know we would be without electricity for three days. All because I wanted to dramatize the "Blowin' in the Wind." OH! By the way...we got not one drop of rain from this storm. Guess the wind was blowing so hard it blew the rain right on through.


At any rate it proved we had a new roof that could withstand the winds as there was no damage there and except for the inconvenience (and you know it is and inconvenience) of not having electricity for three days, we did not lose any trees and only a few small limbs. I'd have to say God had been gracious to us.

Will be going to INDY this weekend to help Wes and Annie move into their new house so if I seem gone it's because I'm movin' not cuz I'm lost.

God Bless you all for your concern!


Thanks be to God!!!


  1. It's amazing that the little leaves are able to hold onto the branches. I'd be in a heap of trouble if we were without electricity that long. I have two side of beef in the freezer. Guess we'd have a big barbeque. Glad it's all over for you.


  2. Glad to hear no major damage was done - and I can surely sympathise with you for being without electricity for 3 whole days!
    Enjoy your time away!

  3. Well I get lost in translation from time to time...good to know you are coming back,enjoy the weekend! I am looking forward on reading your blog in about two weeks,bye now..:)

  4. I kept waiting to see Pooh Bear riding by in the wind by hanging on to a balloon.

  5. Wow. Great footage.
    Where are the flying monkeys?

  6. Thanks, I love video clips! Those leaves are making an amazing noise! Nice to hear your voice. Keep safe :)

  7. Good gracious! And you're not even anywhere near the hurricanes! Glad all is well, though, and that your roof took the beating OK. There's nothing like losing electricity to make you appreciate it, huh? Glad it's back on!

  8. lol the same weather half a world away. I woke up early this morning by a loud clap of thunder! It was blowing a gale here too, but I LOVE the cold weather, it puts roses in your cheeks...But it's going to warm up by Thursday grrr lol.

    Peace to you Cathy:)
