Stormy Weather

We had a short, but powerful storm move through last night. Here is a tree limb that was torn off of our neighbor's tree...

Although this storm packed some pretty powerful winds, it did not hold a candle to the thunderstorm we had last week. That storm lasted for well over 30 minutes and some of the thunder was so loud, that it actually shook the house.

  1. we had a pretty good one here about a week ago. Today just gray skies and chilly.
    Glad it was only a small branch that fell

  2. Yikes! I hate thunderstorms! We don't have any here thankfully. I think we've only heard thunder once in the 8 years we've been here and people called 911 thinking we were under attack! Seriously!

  3. Ann: I think it was only about 6 or 7 feet long, but it sounded a lot bigger when it was being torn off the tree.

    BeadedTail: We have them several times a year and this was the second one within a week. Koko and Yum Yum usually hide-out under the beds until it is over. The one last week was VERY intense: with blinding light and house-rattling thunder.

  4. We have had a couple this week. We're in severe drought so we really appreciate rain but don't need the high winds.

  5. Furkidsmom: I didn't know that. I hope you get some more rain soon.
    The storm last week had quite a bit of rain, but the one last night was pretty dry.

  6. These storms lately are very scary. We had a bad one too last week! Our power was off for 17 hours and our dog came on the bed with us and was shaking!

  7. Karen and Gerard: So far, we have been pretty lucky and our power has only gone out for a few seconds. It sounds as if you have a very smart dog! Do you get these kind of storms often where you live? Here, it's maybe a once or twice a year type thing to have a bad thunder storm.
