There is a terrible storm going on here right now. The lightning is so frequent it is almost constant. There is a tornado watch going till ten p.m. We have hail about the size of rock salt. The wind is really strong. It’s kinda creepy-the furry of this storm. Hasn’t been this bad in a while. Pray our power doesn’t go out. I hate it when that happens.
