I'm usually up before dawn and enjoy my quiet time with a cup of coffee. It's very gray outside today and we've had so much rain lately. Last evening we got hit with a bad storm and tornados touched down on the outskirts of town. The strong winds left their mark, but thankfully no one was hurt.
My thoughts go back years ago, right after we were married, a tornado struck our house in Cape May, NJ. It ripped the roof off and tore the house apart. Galen was on duty that night at the Coast Guard Base and I was alone. Luckily I survived unhurt with my cat, Tuffy, but what a nightmare.
...................time for another cup of coffee. It's 8:30 am already, the sun is peaking through the clouds and the garden is calling me.
