Flooding, Tornadoes, and Pinterest... OH MY

Spring Break 2012 hasn't just come and gone~ it FLEW BY! My husband surprised me and had taken the week off as well! We were all so excited! Jenna was home from college and our first weekend was absolutely Gorgeous! We had Sunshine and temps in the 80's. It was heavenly! The Spring Break forecast showed it to be raining on Mon-Wed. My oh My, did it ever rain! Our town even made the National news for the amount of rain we had received so far. The rain also brought MUCH cooler temps! Monday through Friday was rainy and cold and then Saturday comes and viola' it was 80 degrees and Sunny! While we would have loved to have a week of Sunshine, honestly, we enjoyed the rain and just chilaxxing :)

We rearranged some of our plans and when the rain appeared to finally be tapering off, we decided to go visit our new outlet mall in OKC. When we got there it was the first time we had seen the sun in 4 days! It was awesome! We shopped for a little over an hour and then all of the sudden we hear thunder and very heavy rain!! Soon after, it had tapered off some, so we went on about our shopping. Going from one store to another I happened to looked up at the sky and would you believe I saw a TORNADO FUNNEL!?!?!? People began gathering as they too saw the funnel. I looked over and saw ANOTHER FUNNEL!! The joke about Okie's is we are the only people who take their video phones or cameras out when we see a tornado funnel! I should have taken a pic of everyone taking pics huh! It was too funny!

These guys never touched down, Praise the Lord! These pics really don't do them justice either!

Can't you just hear the Wizard of OZ music when the Witch is on her bike..... hee hee!

We had asked the kids what they would like to do over the break and Jenna had asked to make some cupcakes with her Dad. She found a couple of recipes on Pinterest and really wanted to try them out. I had also seen something on Pinterest that I was hoping to try~ but that is for another day! :)

Hope you all had a GREAT WEEK!

It's amazing how the weather can affect our lives in so many ways, isn't it? It sounds like you still had fun though.


Gave me super warm fuzzies to think of you all off and enjoying spring break together! So glad that no funnel touched down and put a damper on your shopping day!


I'm glad the tornado you saw didn't touch down. This has been an interesting year as far as weather is concerned. I'm glad you had a great Spring Break and that your husband was able to get time off to enjoy it with you.
