Stormy Weather

We had some really bad weather move through last night...heavy rain and tornados touched down in several areas. Sirens were going name it, we had it last night. Thankfully, all my family stayed out of harms way.

We've had so much rain lately that the ground is very saturated. So also are having flooding problems..part of I-30 was closed this morning during rush hour traffic because of water covering the lanes of traffic and it took my daughter Joy almost two hours to get to work.

My office is not too far from one of the areas that was hit last night and when I got to work this morning, there was no electricity in our building (that means no telephone, computers, lights, etc.) Finally after three hours of sitting in the dark twiddling our thumbs, the powers that be at corporate told us to go home. Seems Entergy told the corporate facilities manager, that they had no idea when power would be restored. As soon as I got the call on my cell phone that we could go home, I wasted no time getting out of there.

So now I have a few extra hours at home. Do I want to get a headstart on housework or should I take a nap? Hm.........decisions.

Luck, love and laughter,

A nap would win over housework anytime! Glad you are OK!

Well I would choose the nap... but only if I couldn't craft, crafting wins hands down over sleep EVERY time... ;-) guess that's why I have huge bags under my eyes eh!!

I vote for the nap, always better than housework!
