Ran to the basement for the first time ever. Living in Tornado Alley in Colorado is not usually that scary.
I was standing at the front door watching it rain and hail some, when, all of a sudden, the doors and windows started to howl like a banshee (they do howl, don't they?) and the trees were moving like crazy. Well, my chubby short legs moved quickly to the basement!! It only lasted a few minutes--whatever it was. The storm passed and I thought that was it.
The electricity went out and when I remembered to call REA, they said power would be back on in a little while. It sure was too dark in the house to do anything. That was at 4:30 in the afternoon!
In the meantime, ANOTHER rain storm dumped on us. Poor BooBoo is surrounded by water. And, I haven't had to water the lawn for a month. The paper said some parts of Morgan county have had 12 inches of rain this month. That's our YEARLY average.
