The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

Well, I would like to report that I drove to work in the worst of the storm this morning. I should have known better than to leave the house when the thunder was rolling like it was and I really should have gone earlier before the skies broke loose but I didn't. At least it was exciting?  It took me about 3 different routes to get where I needed to go because of downed power lines, tree limbs, etc. but I decided that since I was on the way that I should go ahead and get there. Apprently it is a good thing that I did because I just missed some really, really bad winds - a possible tornado touching down - not far from here and I probably would have been pretty freaked out to be at home alone. I was so focused on driving slowly and safely and getting to my office that I didn't have time to think about all the bad stuff happening around me!
No power at the office means that we closed for the day and after sitting around to ensure that the worst of that prt of the storm is over, I just got home. We lost about a third of the big beautiful shade tree in our backyard but it doesn't appear that anything hit the house. We will have quite a bit of cleaning up to do once this is all over but so far, we are doing OK. We even have power here which is apparently rare in Chattanooga at the moment. However, round #2 is coming in this afternoon - the clouds are already building and the wind is picking up so it looks like we will have a bit more to weather.
