Spring 2011 has been full of storms and flooding. We've been very lucky to miss most of it. Last night, we had very strong storms and one tornado pass through Obion County. Our electricity was out for a few hours. Stella was taking a nap during most of the storm and when she finally woke up, it was time for dinner. We put her high chair by the front door to catch the rest of the light. Once it was dark, we had to light every candle in the house. She played with her spaghetti by candlelight for the longest time.
I think that Stella knew something was up because she was wired last night! She was giggling and running around the house like a crazy person. We finally got her settled down a little and she watched Toy Story on her portable dvd player with Daddy for a few minutes. The electricity came back right before bed just in time to rock her to sleep. All is well at the Turner house today. I'm thankful for God's protection for our community. We've been very fortunate during this stormy season.
