Look what just rolled in 11 a.m., Saturday, June 19, 2010, just for us before we leave Kansas.
Out the back deck.
Out the front door.
This storm came in, we knew it was coming, but that was the darkest I’ve ever seen a storm rollin’ through here. Funny thing is it hasn’t done much, it’s blowing through here pretty quickly. It’s fun to watch, but always at the same time in the back of our minds, we’re ready to run and hide downstairs if we need to. It doesn’t “scare” me like it did when we first moved here 5 years ago. It’s just barely drizzling outside as the clouds leave. We have really been blessed here in Lawrence as through the years we’ve seen/heard of lots of flooding, damage and tornadoes all around us, but we’ve always been spared of anything major happening.
Oop, here comes the heavy rain. It will still probably only last a very short time. Hope so, we’re having a hot dog roast at the park with all our friends this afternoon as a final goodbye. Sigh. Goodbyes. I don’t want to talk about it.
I have lots to blog about, but this is it for now. Busy, busy day—did lots of packing this morning, now we need to get ready for this afternoon.
Ooh, big boomin’ thunder! Kids running to me. Here comes another. Let’s see if I can get this posted.
