Yesterday was a heck of a day around here. Not because of the usual Thanksgiving Day madness where we dart from house to house eating way too much and feeling miserable the rest of the evening. But because of the unusual weather we had. For instance, yesterday we left our house at 12pm to the next county for dinner at my Moms. The temperature was 70 degrees and it had been raining for some time. The rain continued through the evening and onto another county and another dinner. By the time we returned home at 5pm, the temp. had dropped into the 40’s and it looked as though a tornado had blown through the yard. Turned out we did have a tornado warning around 1pm. The wind completely picked up my glass patio table and umbrella and pitched it over the deck railings and popped the hood on the lawn mower. The rain turned into sleet then huge snowflakes by 9pm. The snow didn’t stick but the sleet sure did.
This evening I realized it blew away one of my bird feeders too. (the wooden platform feeder that the birds faved the most)
I guess it could have been worse.. our neighbor lost a doghouse. But not the dog thanks goodness!
Looks like I’ll be heading to Tractor Supply tomorrow for another one.
I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving and spent time with family.
