Severe weather survived....

Friday, April 29, 2011

We were woken at 7 am with a severe weather advisory. We knew it was moving in but didn't expect the turmoil that attacked the southeast. We were under not only a tornado watch until midnight but a watch for long track tornadoes, something I had never heard of.

We got rain, a little hail, less wind than we expected but other parts of the south didn't fare as well. Our hearts go out to all those impacted by the weather...too many deaths, too much destruction.

Today Stu headed out early to get his bike serviced in Cookeville. I stayed home with Sadie, finishing up some little chores and working with my family on making plans to head to Rochester, NY next week for the memorial services for my stepson.

When Stu got home we headed off to the property where our contractor had been busy today, putting down the layer of rock crush to our driveway. You can see the details and photos here.

Sadie had WAY too much energy after being cooped up in the RV all day yesterday so she REALLY enjoyed her hour playing with her BFF, Keta. LOL!

Okay, need some help identifying this little wildflower. We seen it several times on our property, looks like some type of iris maybe?

The next few days will be hectic while we work on plans to head to Rochester, make doctor appointments, talk to the power company....will blog as time allows (and interesting topics come to mind....LOL!

Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu


  1. Glad to hear you are safe! I was worried about all my rv-ing friends who I knew where in the south. I don't know the name of that flower but it does look like an iris of some sort.

  2. Glad to hear you were safe in TN. That looks like an iris to me - I had a lot of them when I lived in TN - they were small iris compared to others, and multiplied each year.

  3. Yea, it is a minature Iris. I had some back in NJ.

    We, too, dodged the Tornado bullet. Hit near us in OK a few weeks ago, then last weekend about 30 miles away while in Arkansas. We are now in MO.

    Stepson and family lives about 65 N of Birmingham. Will be without electric 3-5 days.

    What a season this has been. Keep safe.

  4. The damage in Alabama and other places sounds awful. I am glad you were not directly affected by the tornadoes.

  5. So glad you are safe! Your in enough turmoil right now for sure! Travel safe and blog when you can.


Love to hear from you - drop a few words and we'll reply!
