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'!
