Are you wondering about the title? Well, the good was that on Saturday, with only a 30% chance of rain.....it poured most of the day. You would think with the tornado that roared through we would have been drenched, and many areas were, but right here we only had a light rain. It barely got the ground wet! We had been under a strict burn ban and it was so, so dry we absolutely needed the downpour.
The bad was that with all the clean-up effort going on that it poured down rain! That means with all the demolished homes, the volunteers that were sifting through rubble trying to find anything the homeowners might want to keep, now stopped, and with all the rain any photos or salvageable things are now ruined. That is just so sad.
The exciting was that all of a sudden, while we were just chilling and watching TV, Lexi yelled horses!!!!! There were two of them running down the street and into the yard of our neighbors across the street. In the next instant we saw this cowboy on his horse chasing them. Also, a bunch of vehicles pulled up.
It took quite a while and we could see the horses running back and forth but finally, victory! Here are all the people coming back. Oh, and see that turbine (underneath the basketball goal), that is the storm shelter we were in during the tornado.
Here are the runaways being led to their horse trailer. It was so cold and raining away!
