Out here on the Plains of West Texas,
we've had some wonderful rains and so glad because we are in a deep, severe drought.
We have also had some violent weather that
we don't want !
The photo above makes me think it's a postcard or something but I took it
as we were driving to see the damage a tornado, winds of 100 mph and golf ball size hail
did to STACY and JENT's house and large shop.
Two large overhead doors were totally ripped off their tracks.....
Thankfully, a large motor home, a vintage pickup, Stacy's jeep...and various other things
all escaped damage...
Looking at all this, I could just imagine the savage 100 mph winds, hail, boat going full speed ahead, pouring rain,
metal and wood flying thru the air...
Again, thankfully, the expensive boat has very small damage...
and the fence and gate can be replaced at not too high cost.
Had the boat went STRAIGHT, it would have rammed into the garage and
BRYNNA's pretty little red VOLKSWAGEN would have probably been demolished.
Isn't it a blessing to see how things could have been SO MUCH WORSE....
ALL the family were out of town.
No water damage to the inside of the house
but would think, after insurance adjusters get there, the roof is probably going to be replaced.
Down the highway from Stacy's house, we saw overturned mobile homes,
some storage sheds totally torn apart and metal sections scattered a mile away.
Some of these things I just couldn't take a photo of.....
A section of telephone poles were swaying in the wind and some were on the ground....
Wires blowing in the wind...
the utility workers were out, repairing things as fast as possible.
More clouds gathering...darker by the minute.
"GOD so loves the world....."
Oh, yes...things could have been a LOT worse and we all thank GOD for blessings.
