Here one minute - gone the next #8

Alvin and I have been working so hard to get our backyard ready for summer. And finally, last week we had pretty much accomplished it!!! That is until this afternoon around three p.m. I had been sitting on the backporch swing, reading. I had gone inside for a second and when I returned to the swing the wind picked up and in a matter of seconds, our backyard went from this...........

to this!

Out of nowhere the wind starting blowing in excess of 60 mph!
Yes, it's disappointing.......we lost all three patio umbrella's and our glass top table was tossed across the yard with umbrella and umbrella stand still attached and as you can see, it is ruined.
But, it's ok, no one was hurt and after all it's just stuff!!!
It took Alvin and I the rest of the afternoon to get it all picked up! The worst part of all.......not a drop of rain! I still had to water the plants after it was all said and done!!!

Oh my goodness! That is just crazy... I'm glad you are o.k. but I would be a bit upset too.

Kelley said...

Oh my word! That's terrible. I am glad that no one was hurt. I tell you that Arkansas weather is something else.

Kayla said...

That's nuts! Any tornadoes or anything around there??

Jacquie said...

Oh my, Becky!!! I wondered about your status earlier asking about the tornado warning. We had some thunder and a little rain, but nothing like that!!

How freaky! I lost an umbrella recently when the wind picked it up and hurled it across the yard.

I had a freaky day too...just posted about it. FYI...don't read at bedtime though.

Glad we didn't get that. Sorry to see your umbrellas and table ruined.
