We are finally getting our much needed rain, but it is in the form of a scary storm in which the meteorologists were trying to keep track of the number of ground-hitting lightening strikes. For three days, this desert land has experienced hours of booming thunder minus the rain. This morning, however, the skies darkened as though it was midnight and gusts of wind are rattling our cheap old windows in the living room (hey, I wanted new windows but not this way!).
Here I am hiding out. On blogger while my Bear sleeps through this chaos.
|Why hello everyone! I am mommy's little monkey.|
|See! I love to goof off and make funny faces for the camera :-)|
Actually, I am deeply contemplating climbing on top of the couch.
As you can see, Ellie Bear loves her new found freedom and has chose the ROCK/STONE fireplace hearth as her "throne".

|Well, there is a Flash Flood going through this exact spot right now.|
|Yep, a River Running Through the Yard.|
Well, since writing this, Blogger crashed and I am now just able to post. The storm has left us and the ground is dry again. All windows are intact and the flash flooding of the backyard and driveway are gone. We finally got our much needed rain :-) Please pray for those affected by all of the flooding along the Mississippi River. While we Austinites are experiencing burn bans, fires, and a drought, so many others have needed to leave their home due to excessive water.
