Along with the birthday celebrations, we had an adventure during a thunderstorm yesterday! I thought I'd give you a good laugh for this Monday morning and share the adventure with you.
First, there 8 dogs at my in-laws house. Most of which are extremely afraid of thunder!! Then, part of the gutters fell off on the back deck because of the heavy rainfall and wind! The gutters had a tarp covering some roof leaks so as soon as the gutter fell, two rooms started leaking! This is all happening while we have 18 family members at my in-laws's so it was a little crazy to begin with!
After we got some buckets under the leaks and my cousin's husband was enlisted to try to fix the roof (he does this by trade), we saw the power lines outside swaying. Worried about what happened, my father-in-law opened the front door to see what was happening. Apparently a huge tree branch had broken and fallen on the line. As we congregated by the front door to look, we saw the line start smoking. Then, it caught fire and we watched a mini-explosion as the line blew! Then, we road was blocked by the power line and tree so we had to call the fire truck and the power company to clear the street because everyone was blocked in!
Needless to say, we had an eventful and adventurous weekend. It was fun but I was definitely ready to get home last night! Think I'll be catching up on some rest this week!
