Stormy Weather

What a beautiful day to blog.  Fall is here, or at least it feels like it today.  About a month ago a crazy storm blew threw Lucca Forest.  It was kind of a Desperate Housewives moment.  You know when a tragedy happens and everyone floats out in their backyard seeing the destruction.  Although on my block it is mainly senior citizens.  But damn nice ones that have good hearts.  Everyone was nice enough to check on our bubby chubbies.  Luckily Todd and I were home and the dogs were in our basement with us safe and sound.

We had gotten home early that particular day.  We never get home early.  Luckily Melody was home, one of my childhood friends and all of us girls were getting together at a local wine bar.  As we pulled into the drive it started thundering and raining pretty good.  As I always remembered growing up mom and dad would never let us shower in storms, you know the lightning could strike you dead in the shower!  Really could that ever even happen?  Well I'm running late and I neeeeeed to cleanse my dirty little pores.  Off to the shower I go.  I had conditioner through my hair and look out the bathroom window...I was terrified.  You could not see anything besides leaves, debree and large amounts of hail.  I heard the hail pounding the side windows of our small brick ranch home.   I grab a towel and run out screaming!  Oh yes I am quite dramatic.  Todd, O'Malley, Zara, Lucy and I went barreling down the basement steps.  It lasted for maybe a minute,  maybe less.  Then it was just still.  So quiet.  This is what we came up to.

A very day for the forest.  A very lucky day for Lucca residents and our furry friends.
