May Day and Rain, Rain Go Away!

I want to wish everyone a Happy May Day!

We actually had some sun a few weeks ago, and I was able to capture a bit of Spring in Arkansas.
Our Rock and Roll roses were blooming.

                                        Our Japanese Maple had budded out.
Unfortunately, this beautiful Spring weather has been short lived.
This is what things have looked like this week.

Clouds were beginning to look pretty ominous.

Then, the wind began to really blow.  I decided to go to the basement, when the weather sirens went off.

This picture was taken from our basement window.

I wish I'd been able to capture the water from the pond blowing in one direction.  It could only mean one thing.....a tornado!! Actually, the spotters saw it before it showed up on the radar from the tv weather station. 

We had hail the size of a quarter.  Something I just learned...When there are threats of a tornado, it usually hails!!

We were so fortunate not to have any major damage or anyone hurt in our little town.  But, others in Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia were not so fortunate.  Please be in prayer for those that have lost so much from the tornados that touched down.  Also, please pray for those that have been flooded out of their homes in Arkansas, and for the farmers that have lost their newly planted crops.  The flooding is the worst ever recorded in Arkansas history. Weather predictions are for more rain for the next 2 days.  We may be building an ark fairly soon.

In the meantime....
