10o mph winds here, currently. Fence is gone. Like, we saw some of it in the street in a lightning flash. 1 rocking chair gone. 1 plant + stand gone. FENCE. The fence is gone. Hay-soos.

Well, I know what the Mister and I will be doing this weekend: getting a new fence. =p

Yikes, sweetie! I'm glad you're all inside and safe. Bummer about all your stuff, though.

And we thought it would go right around us. YIPES. (We're all fine, the girls are a little twitchy, though. )

All are well! Sally (the dog you haven't met) is an utter basket case and was trembling enough to set the sofa shaking.

Yes, NO MORE BREEZE, KTHX. :D

Holy shit, Stoney! Glad y'all are all right. Fences you can replace.

We're fine, we're fine. A little freaked that our 6 foot solid wood fence is lying halfway in the street, but fine.

*squish*

Laughing at the Gunn icon, hahaha! We're all fine! It was SO LOUD and the water was coming down like a car wash for a bit, then the Boy moaned, "oh no!" (Turns out he thought his croquet set was gone. It ended up in some bushes *g*)

I saw a funnel cloud earlier, I did. It was exciting, in that OMG EEP! way.

YIKES. I heard one was spotted in Cleburne earlier, but nothing close to us. Then again, we're on satellite, so we can't get up to the second forecasts, BAH.

Was the downtown? Holy Crow!

That's so funny, because we're going to do some fence shopping this weekend too. Of course, ours is because we never had a fence and we want one so we can get a dog-door for Buddy.

BUDDY! How's his leg coming along? How's your training? I'm totally off-kilter with my flist, I'm so sorry.

I nail your feet to the ground! Not because of the high winds, just because I'm bored.

I will cross my fingers that gods wrath at you dissipates soon.

Get my hands, too! *gives up the ghost*

I can't IMAGINE why the gods hate me, whatever! *thumbs nose at them*

Stay safe! And, take heart! Maybe one of your neighbors will lose THEIR fence, and you'll find it in your yard in the morning!

Ahaha! Man, you never fail to crack me up. I will hope for that! :D

Don't blow away! Hold onto something (probably not the fence, though).

Hee! It's blown past us now. We're just stuck with some more rain (which I know we need, I know, but HOLY FLOOD, BATMAN.)

Eeek! Batten down the hatches!

We were under a tornado watch earlier and there was HAIL. In the desert. In MAY. It's armageddon I tell ye, ARMAGEDDON!

*tosses you all in a bomb shelter*
stoney321
May. 3rd, 2007 01:22 pm (UTC)
I saw that! I saw there were tornados in NM and your area, what on EARTH? That's pretty rare for y'all, I know. Now, I expect weird weather in Amarillo, but El Paso?

If it's the end of the world (as we know it, repeat 3x) I feel fine. YES I SAID IT.

Oh, gosh. That sounds scary :< Hope your house is very sturdy and you're all safe and cozy.

We are like the third little piggy with a house of brick! Some of the houses down the way lost their chimneys, though. Just plucked off their homes and dropped in the neighbors' yards. :O

And now begins the arduous task of cleanup... (thanks for the worry.)

Zounds! (not a word I get to use too often.)

I glad it wasn't anything too serious in terms of damage and I'm glad you and the family are fine.
stoney321
May. 3rd, 2007 01:23 pm (UTC)
What's weird is I hadn't noticed the wind up until my son freaked out and pointed at the window... (*cough* We were watching recaps of AI and there was some... loud, shrieky singing covering the noise, methinks. Hee!)

The most important question: is the croquet set safe? How else will I take The Boy down next time?!?!? Priorities, Stoney, priorities.

For real, though, holy smokes! I think the Mormons are pissssssed at you and are taking vengeance.

I bet Sally *freaked.* Poor Sally. I miss her. :(

Most importantly, I hope everyone is okay. Yikes! What an interesting (read: scary) evening!

We lost two balls and a mallet, but that means it's one with a one to one competition, so YOU ARE GOOD TO GO.

The fence? From the BBQ grill and the patio furniture all the way down to that trellis on the wall? GONE. O_O

We're fine, Sally wet herself, and then felt bad about it. Ahahaha. *mops*

Eeeep. At least you didn't end up in Oz!
That's some scarey winds you have in Texas; guess it fits with the everything is bigger in Texas theme, eh? I thought it was windy here this evening; all the cherry blossoms were flying off the trees, it looked like it was snowing out. But there were no flying fences..
stoney321
May. 3rd, 2007 01:25 pm (UTC)
Or land on a witch!

We do - it doesn't last too long, and I don't remember such a season as this one, to boot. It should start mellowing out and just getting hot and sunny in a week or two. *battens down the hatches*

Eeek to the wind! We will do a wind-calming dance, yes.

The rocking chair! Oh no!

Ack, good luck with getting/installing the new fence.

Hahaha, what's funny is that #2 had a ball game last night that she was afraid would be rained out, so she did a "rain dance" on the tram-ampoline, and I told her when she was done that she just called the rain, not repelled it. :D

IT'S ALL HER FAULT. (I found the rocking chair across the street! DUDE.)

Wow! When did this happen???? Scary winds... I will call you later today so we can catch up. Hope you're all doing well- despite being fenceless....

*ties eight-way knots to you to keep me down!*

You know, people not from here say how scary it is, etc., but yeah: I love it. And when those awesome lightening storms roll across the sky? And you can sit on your back porch and watch the fireworks? Crack a beer can and you've got perfection. :)

Actually, we were watching AI and Harry Potter (two tvs) and didn't realize how bad it was outside! I just thought we were getting a torrential downpour, then the Boy hollered that the fence was gone. :O

Not a shingle missing! We secured them all after the last big storm, so the Mister was pretty proud of his carpentry skills when I called to tell him. :D

(I owe you an email! I'm flying in three directions at once, but I'll get in touch by this weekend, promise!)

Eeek. That sounds seriously scary. I'm glad the people (two r four legs) are safe - everything else is just stuff.

Perhaps you'd better be polite about Mormons for a while? Just in case? Jus' sayin'...

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
