After the storm

As you saw in yesterdays photo, it was a rainy, gloomy day. Soon after that photo was taken, a major storm rolled through. We lost power for 2 hours and it made quite the mess with it's 60 mph winds.

But today dawned a new day, bright and warm. This is a photo of the sweet gum tree in our backyard. I just love how all the gumballs managed to stay on the tree in spite of the high winds. :-)


  1. Wow - 60 mph? Sounds like Omaha - we get tons of wind here and when there is a storm - look out!

  2. I really hate those gum balls, they hurt like crazy when you step on them. Ever made anything with them??
