The girls were already in the tiny "central" downstairs bathroom, and when Jerry and I joined them there I knew we were in for some fun. They were in hyperactive mode and loving our "adventure".
As the winds picked up and the lights flickered we uttered prayers to our God in heaven and hunkered down.
Then the playing continued.
Zipping and unzipping the sofa cushions as well as flashlight play were the top two faves.
Lily even took a potty break in the midst of us. Thankfully it was just a little tee-tee.
Soon enough we surveyed the damage and found several limbs down, potted plants overturned and broken, and patio furniture blown everywhere. I was surprised to see that our little "roller coaster", which locks together, was separated and blown throughout the yard.
Most notably though we lost about 40% of the siding on our chimney.
Thankfully I haven't heard of any injury reports and everyone is resting soundly in this house anyway...lulled to sleep by the soft rain.
And this mama is about to see if it can work its magic on her as well.
