Texasblu posted the meme for this Sunday as 'hearing about you or your family weathering out the storms'. If you click on her name, you can read others stories also.
Aunt Lynn expressed that she wished that she could get some linoleum. Well, uhmm, we were broke and it would be a 16 hour drive to take her back home and come back to our home. Finances would only allow for that. We talked about her desires and needs all the way back home through icy weather.
The next spring we decided that while we could not purchase linoleum for the floor, the guys could put down an acrylic flooring that they did because they had left overs from another job. We could also paint the kitchen too.
The day we were getting ready to leave, they got to have and 'Oklahoma experience'. Everyone was packed or almost packed. Unknown to the rest of us, the Hero decided to bathe before we left. As he was bathing, a storm suddenly appearing in the northwest. There wasn't any warning, the winds picked up terrifically, the sky turned a blackish green, all of us rushed the little ones into the bedroom and snuggled them as close to the bed as possible. The older ones remembered the tornado that demolished Aunt Lynn's house in the 50's (click Aunt Lynn to see that post).
Intense weather moments tend to make you weak in the knees. We have had many such times.
