Well today we got one heck of a thunderstorm. Hail, downpours and crazy winds. Our power even went out which wasn’t cool. I would link back to my post on thunderstorms to explain again how scared I am but I am typing on the netbook which I am not used to. I will tell you that I made Tobei clear out the storage under our stairs so we can hide in there if need be once the hail started and the power went out. Thankfully we did not need the storage space for cover.
Anyways after the storm passed we noticed a bunch of cops and firetrucks at the corner which is 3 doors down. Being the nosy person I am I joined everyone else on the street to see what was up. Ends up lightning struck a tree 3 doors down from us and the tree took out the power line. We were told not to expect power back tonight.
Well that is not going to work for me. I will die without power. Means no a/c, no computer, no tv. That is not how I roll. It is the very reason I do not do camping. I am a lady of luxury who can not live without her luxuries.
So we are at a hotel. My neighbors laughed but I think they are just jealous. It’s not all it is cracked up to be though. I live in a tourist city and its the weekend so hotels are pretty full. I was lucky to find one that had a room and would allow my dog as well. Just means Little Man is in the bed beside us NOT sleeping. Eventually he will pass out right?
Tobei got some pictures of the damage as the neighbor asked him to just in case she has to call the insurance company. So I will share pictures tomorrow when I am back home. There better be power back by tomorrow or this hotel will be getting more money from me.
Oh and by the way Little Man is super smart. Before he even saw the tree he was telling us “tree fell down”. Oh oh do I have a psychic on my hands? He has repeated it over and over numerous times on our ride to the hotel. He loved seeing all the action though when we did bring him to see it. Such a little boy, was totally excited over fire truck. I am not sure he saw the tree even.
