Check These Out!

Check out these storm clouds.

We were at my SIL & BIL's lake house for the day.
We were minding our own business doing a little bit of water fun and the police stopped us.
I did have a glass of wine in my hand so I thought that was the problem.
Nope, the problem was that they were warning everyone to get off the lake....."a couple storm cell's are heading our way".

Sooo...off the lake we went...
well...after we whipped my other SIL, Kathy, around a bit!

So, as some time went by it was time to go.




This is what we drove home in.




I did feel a bit like a storm chaser.
I think I should have my own TV show.

How fun would that be???

Summer storms creep up out of the blue and can be so strong. We had one a couple weeks ago tear apart one of my trees [so sad}
