Lights Out. Uh-huh. Dance, dance, dance!!

Do you remember that 80's song? That's what I was thinking about last night when we were without power for 5 HOURS!! We had a tornado hit close to our house, so the power was out from 5:30-10:30. I can't believe this pic actually turned out since the house was completely black except for 2 candles. I grew up in tornado alley without a basement, and never had a problem. (Other than the time that my mother put us both in a bathroom with no windows. I could also be scarred from all of the tornado drills at school.) Now here I am as an adult, with a basement, not living in tornado alley, and we've had to use the basement to escape tornado warnings twice in less than two weeks. Yikes!! One of those times I was flying THROUGH the tornado warnings returning from my Texas trip. Not a pleasant flight or landing!! Here I thought I was just getting a basement to store all my junk:)

oooh, yes we danced. We danced the "jig" on St.Pats day in Columbia! What a sweeeet "jig" it was. We escaped another possible tragic evening in our new home. Someone has been watching over us and their guidance will hopefully keeping us joyfully dancing for many days and years to come.

The last time I remember the power going out here, Avery was conceived...what else is there to do? :)

I'm so glad your house is ok!
I bought a portable generator from QVC and it will power a couple things from your house when the power goes out.

I hate it when we lose power and it seems to happen a lot! At least we can get water from our creek to flush our toilets! :)

The town we grew up in had a terrible tornado go through a year before I was born and several people were killed. Because of that my Mom was always afraid during tornadoes. We would have to go down to our yucky fruit cellar which was cold and damp and kind of scary to me. Glad yours is clean and dry!

Perineoplasty (or Perineorrhaphy) has an objective of
making this area look normal by cutting out excess skin and
flaccid skin tags. This is a great font for use with winter designs as you
prepare all your Christmas artwork. Click OK and wait a second or two for the
effect to be applied.

The first type is present from birth while the second type is not, but starts
to appear and proliferate as the years pass. Do this method up
to four times a day until the skin tag falls off.
There are many different reasons that could lead to the development of
these tags on the skin.

Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
Appreciate it!

Aw, this was a very good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to create a
very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot
and don't manage to get nearly anything done.
