North Dakota Weather... crazy!! It has been really nice the whole time we've been up here, except for three rain storms. This morning I jumped out of bed at 7 a.m. and woke Blair because it was HAILING!!! My brand new car was outside on the driveway and I wanted to get it in the garage! So we hurried down to the garage and shifted boxes around and Blair pulled my car in for me! (Isn't he sweet?!) At the moment, it's not raining, but about 20 minutes ago the "Commander's People" came over the loud speaker and issued a lightning warning!! Every time it storms they do that. This morning around 10 a.m. our street was covered in water! It receeded quickly though.

Let me show you the hail we had.

This is looking down the street towards the storm. It's so dark!!

Crazy isn't it? Greg (my hubby) was just up there from the 13th to the 26th of July. He said the weather was much nicer there. It about killed him coming back to this heat down here. I like what you've done to the house :}

Hail? In August?!! That's nuts!! You forgot to mention that when we talked this morning! The picture looking down the street is so pretty! The sky looks like it goes on forever. I mean, I know it does, but...oh, you know what I'm sayin'! Love you!

Thanks for the updates...I love all the photos!

I remember the hail storms we had in WY...if we had rain it was always hail. I love your house and I'm so glad things are going well (besides the car incident, how terrible!).

Can you email me your physical address when you can please Laura! :)
