These Boots Were Made For Stompin'...

A little over a week ago, we had a storm of epic proportions in our "neck of the woods".  The sky quickly grew dark, and the wind began to blow.  Within a matter of minutes, three of the pine trees in our yard were snapped in half and lay on the ground--only missing our home and storage building by mere inches.  Next it began to hail!  By this point my nerves were very frazzled, so I sought safety in our large whirlpool tub until the last of the storm had passed.

Here's a photo of grandchildren, Madison and Caden, showing off their rain boots after the storm had passed.  Nothing like making the best of a bad situation--by stomping in a few mud puddles after the rain!  What child doesn't enjoy doing that?

I could have used a pair of those boots myself--to stomp away some of the tension left in my head following that storm.

All's well that ends well--at least all of those trees missed the house!  The only problem now is I tend to freak out every time the wind blows...Gonna' have to buy me some rain boots, and do a little stompin'!

We had storms here too. No hail, but thunder that shook the house and lighting that lit the sky so bright it looked as if it was daylight. And yes, our yard was a mudpit for days. Not good when you have two dogs brining in the mud from their paws. Bluck. I can see how a child would love to stomp in the mud!

There are some cute rain boots now. Get some, put on that Nancy Sinatra oldie, "These Boots Are Made for Walkin' and start stompin'!

I heard those storms were awful. They are scary, aren't they? I think you need to get some rainboots of your own!

I can't believe how big those grandkids are getting. They are so growing up so fast. xo Diana
