Un-Caffeinated Wind Storm

The wind huffed and puffed and blew a bunch of stuff down.
Trees down, power out...my plastic swimming pool blew into the next county!
Look!
A yard full of sticks.
How wonderful!

The scariest part was no coffee for Mom and Dad.
They boiled water on the gas stove, only to discover nothing but whole bean coffee in the house and an electric grinder.

We can laugh now, 
but it WAS scary!

  1. Better invest in one of those hand cranked grinders to avert any future caffeine crises…

  2. That would be very scary- no coffee for the peeps! That howling came to our old farm house too, but we did not loose power. I saved some sticks for you!

  15. Hey, we think we saw your pool blow through our yard yesterday when it brought all that cold air here too. We'll see if we can snag it if it comes back:)

    Mom would be lost without her tea or coffee. Folger's makes a coffee :bag" .like a teabag.that you could use with some of that boiled water, not great but better than none.

  17. Hey Wyatt!
    Wow, I bet that storm was really scary! I think for our peeps having no coffee would be like us having no stuffies. TERRIBLE! Glad things are better now and you did a great job moving that stick. BOL

  21. We had a bad wind storm a couple weeks ago, and it knocked over the neighbor's tree in the middle of the night. It did some damage to our property, but thankfully did not hit our house. And today, winter arrived....how many days until Spring?
