Windy Wednesday

I stopped to drop off some papers to my favorite Hannah this morning and came upon my favorite Bethany. It was the perfect surprise! I got to snuggle two babies!!! Good thing I had my camera along.

The day was bright, sunny, and pleasant. The wind kicked up a little after noon and turned the city and surrounding areas into a bit of chaos. Lots of downed trees and power lines, branches everywhere, and a few flying trampolines. Empty tractor trailer trucks were eventually banned from the highways, traffic lights went out making multiple 4-way stops, and rush hour commutes doubled and tripled in time. A tree came down on a car in the work parking lot,
and Bethany had the foresight (or maybe a whisper from God) to move two of her vehicles out of the driveway before the pine tree came crashing down. The third one had a dead battery and the tree landed directly behind it, tickling the back bumper as it dropped.


  1. Thankfully the vehicles weren't hurt and I hope all else was safe.

  2. Hannah's little one sure looks like several of your sons!!! Strong genes. haHa

  3. What beautiful babies :-) My goodness that wind was ferocious, wasn't it? Gosh.......good thing no one was hurt.

  4. Those babies are adorable! The wind wasn't as bad here, but it was still strong and scary. We want springtime and bare feet, but Old Man Winter still has a few tricks up his sleeve...high 18 on Saturday, harrumph! Wow that she thought to move those cars!
