So now we will be driving which gives me an extra few minutes to blog. This weekend was kind of crazy. On Saturday evening we had some horrible storms hit this area. I knew it might rain, but we heard nothing of storms. Anthony and I were cuddled on the couch watching a movie when all of a sudden the tornado sirens go off. We look confusedly at each other and then run to our front porch. It looked calm and wasn't even raining yet. Without tv, we felt kind of lost, but we eventually found a radio station that declared us under a tornado warning with severe storms and high wind. We live in a 2nd story condo and have no basement. Normally we don't worry about it, but this sounded bad. We debated about leaving or staying. Finally, just as the storm was hitting and the power went out, we decided to run to the church, which at least is on ground level. We were there from about 10:15-12:00am. It definitely made for an eventful night. Really bad lightning and up to 80 MPH winds. We made it back safely and no damage was done to our condo, though there is tons of damage all around us. Trees are down everywhere and power was out all over the place. We were awoken Sunday morning with the news that both the church and the conference grounds were without power. Aka no instruments or mics for music. So Anthony managed to pull off a simple Hymn sing for everybody. The power did end up coming on right before service, so that helped. But man, it was a crazy night and morning.
Sunday afternoon was so pleasant, you would have no idea (except for the fallen trees everywhere) that a storm had passed through the night before. Anthony and I were able to enjoy a boat ride with some friends and then see the movie Inception. Very good movie, by the way. We ended the evening eating pizza and playing games with Ben and Jen and their siblings. We're going to be very sad when they move away next week :(
Alright, well we're off to small group via car.
