Storm's Over


I took this picture before the tornado blew through. The peony bush is flattened now, but still blooming. The billboard is down and some trees, but all the RV's are still standing and we didn't even lose power. No one was injured and the sun shined on the campground all afternoon. Life is good.

We will get a new billboard, the trees have already been cut and will make good firewood. A little clean up and everything is good as new. The pool actually over-flowed and my garden was under water at one point. I was huddled with my dogs and He Who is far too curious was watching on the front porch. I don't participate in such ......

The best thing about this day was discovering the new Killdeer nest. Hildy watched me as I rode through the park surveying the debris on the ground and as I approached the gravel drive to the dump station she called out with a "dweep, dweep". She proudly displayed two eggs in the same nesting area as last year. She chattered away as I gathered some rocks around her eggs to protect them, then sat on them as I got back on the golf cart.

All is well in my world. My baby girl turned 35 today. Can't wait til next month when she comes to see us. I will be baking some birthday cakes ....
