Well...that was fun

We had a huge wind and rain storm last night. I don't prefer the wind. It sort of frightens me. A good breeze to dry my sheets I can handle but "damaging winds" I don't get into. I had just finished talking to Ffamily of Five when boom, out go the lights. I had only moments before told her it sounded as though my house was being torn apart. I was downstairs in the family room and the kids were all upstairs on the other levels. Hud of course was at work. I stumble up in the pitch black trying not to trip on cats and dog and got to the kitchen where Daniel met me and we lit all the candles. Aside from enjoying the main floor looking pretty, I was anxious. Tracey from next door came over with glow sticks for the kids and they promptly went down to the family room to make a huge fort. After an hour of such entertainment we all blew out the candles and went up to my bed where we all tucked in and I read to everyone. Of course the wind sounded even louder upstairs and I was freaked. One by one the kids decided that they were heading to their own beds. I was pushing the safety in numbers card and no one was biting! Around ten o'clock the lights came back on so I watched the news. Soon after Hud came home so I was able to sleep somewhat peacefully. It's still windy but not like last night.

I want to leave you with the most hilarious commercial I have seen in a long time.....http://www.becel.ca/brokenescalator I tried to post it right to my blog but Castpost is down again....both the tv commercial and the directors cut are great!

I hate wind also. I always feel as if the trees are going to fall on the house! I am off to watch your video!

I love this commercial. It was kind of scary not having power and the high winds wasn't it? It's still windy but thankfully we have power.

The wind is VERY scary! I'm a wimp too.

That commercial is so funny. I like when the lady opens her mouth SO big & yells, HELP!
