    ...and I slept right through it. [​IMG]

    I woke up to this:
    This branch broke and fell about 40 feet and almost clobbered my maple tree me and DH planted when we bought this place.

    DH said there was a huge branch down in the front and I was like "how on earth did that happen"...he said "are you kidding? You didn't hear the storm last night? It was storming hard!" I never heard not one clap of thunder all night. I was dead to the world. [​IMG]

    Trisha, we did not get a single drop here in Sanford. I'm just glad your damage was minimal, it looks like it could have been much worse.

    I was gonna say the same thing Laura, not a drop. Send the rain our way, even if it is a storm! [​IMG]

    Ashley I think WRAL said last night that we are going to get some rain tonight. I hope so anyway. It sure will help with the water bill, I won't have to water the garden.

    we had some wind a rain early in the afternoon but it got sunny and it was beautiful and breezy last night its really nice today only about 80 with a nice breeze and sunny the hens are really laying 10 eggs yesterday from 11 hens and I am sitting out and they are certainly screaming his afternoon! I am glad nothing was damaged it is always scary to have trees break around your.

    I have a rainstick. Anyone need rain? I swear everytime it gets too dry around here, I just wave my rainstick - in an hour or so, I get rain. My sister lives a few miles away and doesn't get any rain.

    I just need to figure out how to send it out to people who need it. [​IMG]
