So I recognize that I just did a post. BUT...
Cait did an awesome prompt over at notebooksisters and I just had to do it.
Because it is about weather.
1. Set your timer and write for 5 minutes.
2. Publish! (No editing. This is rough, unrefined writing.)
3. Grab our SOC button from the sidebar.
4. Sign in with our LinkUP on Sundays.
5. Stop by the other blogs and say hay!
today's optional prompt: a little change of weather
Last night, the weather blew in. Literally. We had a nice sunny morning, with a little bit of wind. It is the end of summer here in Missouri. The clouds are white and fluffy. The sky vivid blue. Birds sing, dance in the sky, alight on homy limbs to rest. It is not too hot anymore.
But last night....
The storm came.
This thunderhead did not come from our neighbors, Kansas, Ohio, or any other Western States. No, it grew over us. Mountians of clouds burgeoning in the sky, dark and onimous. Yes, that was what they were.
All of a sudden, it seemed, they hit.
At 3:15 we had a perfectly sunny sky, not a cloud in sight. At 4:15, we had tornado sirens going off in town because the straight line winds were so harsh. They destroyed trees, buildings, tore down power lines, and wrecked many homes.
Our driveway is lined with ornamental pear trees. Almost half of them are ruined.
Fall has begun. Winter is coming.
It reminded us with a vengeance.
Daddy and I removing a limb so we could open the gate and get home.
This barely give a glimpse of the damage. I might upload more pics later.
For now, so long, fellow linkers. :D
