Tornado Warnings!

Here at the White Farmhouse we are prone to tornadoes.

They just pop up at a moments notice.

I have noticed that the skies are usually gray and overcast. Maybe even a chance of some rain.

It may even be a touch windy. I don't know if you can see the pear tree in our front yard being bended over.

It is usually quite noisy in the house since the kids can't go out and play.

When the tornado hits, you notice the quiet.

So quiet that it almost hurts your ears.

A deafening quiet.

This is usually while the tornado is hitting and doing it's most damage.

We were lucky this time. The damage was not as extensive as it usually is.

Some areas were not hit as hard as others.

Thankfully, the damage seems to be contained in this one room. Not all through the house while I am contained in one room painting.

Even though I didn't get pics of it. There was more.

The dog got hit too.

With a bottle of deoderant.

The white kind.

Atleast she does not stink anymore.

She has come to expect it when she hears that quietness.

Then as quickly as it starts, the tornado quiets down.

Don't you dare comment on how sweet that baby is either!!

She is EVIL!

The National Guard has not been called this time.

Any relief funds can be made to Molly Maids!

Trust me, I got their number....

Crap... you got me good. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see trees buckling like literally in half. I'm so gullible!!

Looks like you have something to do this afternoon, eh? (ducking as you throw 20 stuffies at me!)

So Funny! and so true...Why weren't we warned, My guess is we wouldn't have believed it. Oh wait, maybe it's that "what goes around, comes around" thing. It's still funny!

Dar said...

Thanks for the giggle, tho you described it so vividly that I could hardly believe my eyes as the tornado sleeps...is that the same room you just cleaned a bit ago? Oh dear, do I remember those days. My tornados now have their own homes to keep up...loved this entry. Too fun!

Like Donna I was waiting and going OMG!! Then I laughed out loud ~ I am STILL grinning like a fool. Too funny Maggie and she looks like an angel especially with those wings!!

Miss Maggie! Bitty ONe is the name of that little tornado! Oh what a cute, cute, cute post! At first I was actually so worried for you- and when I could name the tornado, I became a little worried for her! You are the best! I got my daily smile from your blog.

I do think you will have to call the national guard to help with the clean up. If they can't come you can always call the Marines!
Love you, friend!

Hi There! I am a fellow Michigander, crazy farmhouse dweller, too! I dunno exactly how I found you but I wanted to say hello! I'm waving at you from mid-Michigan (the lower peninsula)!

I am going to take a look around here for a bit!

Theresa @ 612Riverside said...

That was too funny! Your little Angel looks like the calm after the storm! It does wear one out to create such a storm you know! I can't help but laugh at the deodorant on the dog, she must have figured he was too stinky to reside in her tornado world! Thanks for starting my day with a grin, Theresa

Oh my goodness -- what a delightful post, Maggie. She is such an angel! I was so grateful that you were all okay -- and you really are okay. Just a normal (almost) family. Those tornadoes can come on quickly, huh? lol

Miss Maggie, save your pennies and come and visit me! We would have a wonderful time! I'm serious! Come on!

Oh Maggie,
That sweet little pink fairy could never have done anything like that sort of damage !!.....and, don't you go telling that dear little girl off.She is obviously just resting after helping you around the house !!!! hahahaha
Maggie, that was so funny.....I realy thought that you were in for some terrible weather and I was going to tell you all to look after yourselves and take care ....... until I saw the bedroom that looked as if a whirlwind had gone through it !!
Now, I don't want to hear that you've told your dear little one off. Tell her that Auntie Jackie will have something to say about that !!!! XXXX
