Crazy weather

Sat here yesterday and last night watching what appeared to be normal rain clouds move over our are and heading to the North East. By the afternoon many families lives had changed and come the evening many more would change. It has always amazed me how rapidly mother nature can change. I know we laugh here in Texas and say that if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes it will change, but this year that old addage has been truer than normal.
I have seen strange weather events around here in my lifetime, from freak sandstorms out of West Texas that make their way all the way to the DFW area, to snow and ice storms in April/early May. I have even lived through many of the wonderful Texas tornados, sometimes passing right over my house, but I would have to say that this storm season as been the worst, most distructive and devestating one that I can remember.
I'll be honest, if the tornado season is this bad, and we are heading into hurricane season, than God help us because we are in for some freaky, messed up weather

As May draws to an end:

Wow looks like an entire month slipped by, ok so almost 2 months, before I was aware of it. Alot of things have been going on around here, from births to moves to the end of the semester, I am not sure where to begin.

OK so we have purchased a new house and land, I won't bore you with the details, just be prepared to see all the pictures soon as we make improvements and get everyone/thing settled. Millie had her babies, Lexi, Le Pew and the smallest Flashy Lassie. I have promised the kids that they can show them in the State Fair this year so we will see how this goes.

I passed the semester and am ready to head into the summer!!! Oh what a summer it shall be, building decks, porches, stalls, barns, and playgrounds, as well as fencing and normal repairs to the Farm.

I know that I am not the most faithful in posting but please bare with me and I will attempt to keep everyone informed.
