So Wednesday night turned out to be an interesting one. It seems like about every night we have some sort of weather warning (tornado, thunderstorm, flood, etc.) and usually they aren't a super big deal. Wed. was a little more scary though. If you have watched the news you probably heard about the boy scout camp that was hit by the tornado and the damage that was done there. So about 45 minutes later that same storm came right through Carroll. Luckily it did not produce another tornado while in town, but it brought with it 70-80 mile per hour winds, which can be pretty damaging in themselves. Here are a few pictures from our neighbor's yard. Their trees did not hold up very well to the storm. Their house was not hit (although it was really close), only their fence was damaged. Fortunately, the trees in our yard did not have any big limbs break off. All around town it is a pretty big mess though. Mostly the damage was done to trees, and depending on where the trees landed the houses and surrounding areas were also damaged. I've never seen trees totally uprooted by wind before...kind of a scary thought, but a reality here in town! I don't believe that anybody here in Carroll was hurt as we had pretty good warning that the storm was coming, but I sure am glad that Nate was home while that storm was here. I've about had enough of this crazy weather (not to mention the 2 extra inches of rain that the storm brought along with the wind) As long as we aren't having to make a trip to the hospital in weather like that I should be fine :)All of the stuff on the ground is tree branches...not bushes.
On a happier note...here is my cutie pie. We got her a toddler bed a few weeks ago and set it up in her room. For now it serves as a trampoline and a fun place to play. I plan on letting her make the transition slowly to the bed...she really likes her crib! But as you can tell, she is getting more used to the idea of a bed.
