Bad Moods, Funnel Clouds and Torrential Downpours

So as soon as I hit publish on my post yesterday, I looked up and it was pitch black out (at 4pm). I'm not talking about gray and dingy... I'm talking my solar lights were kicking on because they thought it was night. Then the wind started. So I said "Self, this doesn't look good. Time to put on the weather channel." Turns out my county was in the midst of a "Tornado Warning." I ran around shutting off everything that could blow if we lost power (which happens all too frequently since we are on "country" lines) Just in time for the DirectTV to black out and the torrential rain to start. I couldn't even see to the end of my property line. We had multiple sightings of funnel clouds and water spouts in the area (a water spout is what occurs when a funnel cloud meets a body of water) Twenty minutes later, the storm had passed and the sun was breaking through. I guess Mother Nature was joining in my temper tantrum! HA! Thanks to all the comments and emails - I do feel as though my mood passed almost as quickly as the storm... sometimes you just need to vent and move on. I'm still planning to post some fun things today - but I need to get some work done first. More soon...
