So last night we had some really bad thunderstorms. When Aaron and I went to bed we saw on tv that there was a tornado watch for our area but we didn't think much of it and went to bed. Well, around 1:30am Aaron and I both woke up to some really loud rain and then hail... Once Aaron said it was hailing I asked if he thought there was a tornado near us because the wind was SO loud, well we immediately jumped out of bed. I ran and got Greyson out of his crib and met Aaron in the hall were he told me to get in the closet with Greyson. I was shaking by this point I was so scared! Not to mention I was scared for Aaron because he didn't get in the closet with us! Crazy guy! It felt like I was in the closet forever but i'm sure it was only a few minutes then Aaron came and got me and said it was over but our patio cover didn't survive. We were just so glad that we were all safe and our home wasn't damaged too bad. The news didn't say anything about a tornado touching down in our area but Aaron and I both think there was one. Especially after seeing the damage this morning.
Hurricane Gustav didn't blow it down but a bad thunderstorm and possible tornado sure did! I guess that's what homeowner's insurance is for, looks like we'll be getting a new awning and possibly a new roof. I'll be sure to post pics of the replacement, hopefully it won't take too long for us to get it all fixed! The worst news is there supposed to be more bad weather tonight, I pray everyone stays safe!
