Mother Nature hasn't been a bit particular about where she went with all the storms in Tornado Alley. There hasn't been as much damage as in Oklahoma that I heard about in our area. I talked to my sister who was in the path of a tornado, but it was close to her. She is o.k. and no damage. The rain and hail were heavy at times. Our hail was pea size so once again we were lucky in that respect. It rained so hard that you couldn't see my neighbors who's house is not that far away.
They are saying we are going to have more storming for the rest of the week. I wish it would let up a little with all the rain we have had flooding in our area on the Missouri, 102, and Platte Rivers. The rain also came so hard that some people had water in their basements. We have a little creek that is close to the house. I could see water in it from my window. I haven't seen that in a long time. I don't know how much we have got, but you could tell where it was over the streets is different areas of town. . 
I spent most of the day at the nursing home. Hubby was sick yesterday with flu like symptoms and wouldn't eat. I went up to make sure that he ate something. You have to eat with all of the medications that he takes. He had soup for breakfast. I wanted to talk to the nurse to see what the doctor had to say yesterday that was going to check him out. He is feeling a little better, but they are keeping an eye on him. 
Saturday is suppose to be a horse show, but with all of the rain, the arena may just be to wet . We will have to wait and see. Hope you all are having a good week. Take Care

Shirley- I am so sorry that you have had all that rain. It is scary with the weather going on across the country at this time.

I hope your hubby feels better soon. I have to eat with the medication I take, too, so I understand what he goes through -not feeling well and HAVING to eat something.

Hope if there is a horse show you are able to go watch the kids- xo Diana

Oh this rain! It is raining hard as I write this in my county. I see on radar that there is a big red cell moving through and more coming. We've already had 7 inches or so all together. The river is very full here, so I won't be surprised if it doesn't get out. At least in some places. Some of the creeks have already been out.

I'll say a prayer for your hubby and for you, too! Take care, Shirley, and stay safe and dry.

Hi Shirley! Thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit. I think about you from time to time. Sure hope you are spared any severe weather and that your dear hubby is on the mend. I'm so happy that your children take such good care of you, too. Have a great weekend!

Hugs from your SC friend,

Thanks for visiting Applejack Lane this week. It was a pleasure to have you!
Hasn't the weather been something to talk about this year? We had such a late spring and it jumped right into summer. Right now, we could use a little rain. My fledgling garden dries out so fast.
Hope your hubby is doing well today.

And the storms just keep on coming--- God bless every soul that has been touched by the ravaging winds of there terrible storms. I'm glad you are safe Shirley--- I hope you are doing something fun this weekend:)

The flooding was really a concern, especially when it got into some homes. Though it was great that the hail stones weren't bigger than that. At least you didn’t have to worry about roof and exterior damages as well.

Storms can totally damage your house, Shirley. Regular maintenance should be done on your home to make sure it can endure harsh weather conditions. Moreover, you should only use durable materials to fortify its structure. Months have passed already, and I hope you've maintained your house's beauty and durability. :)
