Photos From Our Whopper Storm!

Here are some photos from our WHOPPER of a storm on Thursday, Aug. 28th, 2008. It was quite an awesome storm! I found these photos online and they are taken by different people around the Valley.



Look at these AWESOME anvil clouds!! Aren't they beautiful?


Something out of a Frankenstein movie!


The dust moving in:

One HUGE lightning bolt coming down there!! Makes you wonder what got hit!



Just had to share those with you. There were trees down all over the place as well as power poles and lines. I saw several photos of cars with trees on top of them. It was really a bad storm.

Went to Church today. Speakers were good and classes were too. Now we are home just being lazy. Colebe called to talk to Grandma before we got home so I called him back. He wanted to know when we were coming to see them. Killer question!!! I'd sooooo love to be up in Utah with my Utah kids. It would mean leaving my Arizona kids behind and still not being with my Idaho kids. I told them all a long time ago that they were forbidden to move away from us. They didn't listen!! Now we are spread out all over the place and it's hard on this Grandma's heart to not have her grandchildren near by. Even the Arizona ones are far enough away that we don't get to see them very often. Especially now that gas is so expensive.

Well, I hope everyone is taking the time to enjoy the Simple Pleasures. They are all around us. So keep an eye out for them. You'll be surprised how many neat things you will find. Happy Sunday!!
