Out of Touch

The sky TWO days after the storm! It was so beautiful, but I'm still shocked at the change drastic change from summer to fall.
View from my apartment. You can see the school and the enormous mud puddle underneath.
It's going on four days without Internet access. Funny how dependent I've become on this modern convenience. We a huge storm on Sunday morning. Guess what? It is totally possible to jump straight up when your body is completely flat. Nothing like the rumbling of thunder to get a girl up at six! I'm counting my blessings because 3 of the 5 of us who live in my apartment building experienced major flooding, but not me...this time. The playground was eroded and there is still a mud puddle the size of a great lake in front of our building. It's partially sunny today. Pray for this California girl! I need to realize that life goes on regardless of the weather, and if I never Skype or Blog again, I'll survive.

Ah, reminiscent of my college days in the Midwest - they know how to do thunder and lightening! Glad to hear that you didn't have to mop up...this time. And thankful you are none the worse for the wear.

Hey Holly... I've changed my blog web page to faithfamfriends.blogspot

I am so glad that your place didn't flood. Just think of all the memories you're making!
