Fire and Ice




I thought the flowers would have been torn up from the hail and wind.

Hail really started coming down.

Well we certainly had a little storm blow through here last night! Hubby had been home about thirty minutes when the phone ran...It was our "on-call" plumber, Matt. "I've been in a wreck. Someone rear ended me in the van. Two or three cars then ran into the guy the rear ended me..." Hubby's standing at the ready.... "Is he OK"???.....I then hand the phone to him. Yes, he's ok, no injuries. Certainly shook up though. But does he go home??? Not Our Matt!!LOL...He went on to his next call! Kudos for the Matt!lol...So, out into the blowing rain, goes Hubby. Not long after he left it started hailing, but Hubby said that by the time he got to Matt, he didn't even need an umbrella. The rain lasted about thirty minutes, then slowed...then nothing. That was it. So grateful!
Today started off cloudy but has ended up being beautiful. Got some practice in with my Canon on the flowers that I just KNEW the hail would ruin, but didn't. Earlier I'd gone into town and took back a loaf of German rye bread that the .... bakers?...SPIRAL cut instead of using the straight cut on....HOW could they NOT know what they were doing???LOL....Then I bought a tomato plant, cantaloupe, strawberry and watermelon as well, for the garden. I've never grown strawberry. This should be interesting...LOL. Well, guess I'll get my pics loaded so I can finish the roast, rice and gravy that Hubby prepared. I think I'll let him stay...
PS- Oh Yeah, I started another blog for mostly just pictures. The link is on my sidebar under Photography Blogs (Made in Heaven Too)...LOL..right...But I AM working at it...this is All Miz Brenda's fault...LOL...night.

Donna said...

Wow, some weather you've been having. Your roses are beautiful, Donna!
As for the strawberry plant, I just put mine in the ground and it took off. They get lots of runners. I also put some straw around the plant so the berries are up off the dirt. Good luck!
Hugs,
Donna
