Sky Falls Down

Today. Has been quite a day.

First of all: it's been raining for approximately forever.


A tree fell on my grandparent's house. Thankfully they were out of town so no one was hurt. But I drove over in the rain to see the damage.

The first thing I saw when I drove up was this:

Oh, hello giant tree and mud and roots! You look awesome!

All you can see from the street is this:

Now their porch looks like this.


I headed in to work. Or at least TRIED to get to work.

Here is what one road looks like now:

Fun, right?

And here is work:


Needless to say, things were a little crazy at work- nothing like some inclement weather (to say the least) to keep you on your toes!

Luckily the day ended with sunshine and Sporcle.

(Which really is almost as good as a rainbow.)

I can't even imagine what it is like at camp...PLEASE tell me you guys have power?!

Seriously, it's something new every year. And it seems like whatever "it" is tops the "it" from the year before...

And Holy Tree Trunk, Batman! You aren't even kidding! Geeeeeeeeez! Im so glad no one was home, but that is no bueno! I hope everything is taken care of as quickly as possible.

I'm SO glad you posted pictures. I was imagining all kinds of things.

Stay dry and uncrushed by falling trees, dear one.

Yeah, Paul and his Young Guns have really had their work cut out for them. And thanks for the introduction to Sporcle... hours of fun!

In Tyler, Texas? Totally nuts! Still in shock that Grandma & Grandpa's house looks like that! Thanks for being the daily reporter....
