Where have I been??
Yes, I know I've been missing in action from here and from visiting my peeps online (I've been on Twitter, I swear, just not as much). *hangs head* I'm already the world's laziest blogger but I've been bad, even for me. BUT I have good reasons for my distractions - visual evidence:

First came the hail -

See that big piece of hail? It's actually a bunch of small pieces all clumped together - I've never seen hail like that before! And I still haven't taken my car to be checked (because, of course, I was driving home from work during part of the hail storm).

Then came the lighting (which encountered one of my trees) -

(ignore the funky pinkness, my camera has a weird sensor that will be replaced soon)

Which led to -

And then, just when things were mostly taken care of (insurance adjusters finished, tree cleaned up, roof estimates in, etc.) - TORNADO!! Okay, probably straight line winds associated with a tornado, but still...

Final count - two of my trees down (one of which landed on the corner of my neighbors' house - but they had at least two of their trees on their house, too, poor things. My tree was the least of their problems. Plus, one of my back neighbors' trees hitting my fence.

So, my peeps, you can see why I've been distracted. >.< Add in a family wedding shower and a visit from my mother and you get even moar distraction! But things are mostly calm now - yard cleaned up again, roofers still scheduled to come in a couple of weeks - so I should be back to the regular neglect of my blog, visiting all my peeps I haven't been visiting and finishing the reviews I've started.

What's been going on with everyone else??

Yeah, I'll take the snow we're still randomly getting over a tornado any day.

Sorry that all this happened, but I'm glad you're ok.

Ames - Thanks! I've been really lucky about the whole bad weather thing, until now. It just all happened together. Blah.

Dude! I would hate to drive in hail and man I'm glad you're okay too because man, that's scary. Scarier than our earthquake we had yesterday.

Rowena - OMG the driving through the hail was scary! So loud!! It was like being under fire from evil ice elves or something. Every time a piece of hail hit the car I flinched! Picture me ducking my head while driving. *POW* *duck* *POW* *duck* Not. Cool. ;-)

Seeing that root out of the ground!? That be crazy winds! Glad no damage to you - sorry about the roof and loss of trees.

Is it summer yet?

Cindy - Thanks! And it's summer here - we're supposed to have highs near 90 for the next several days. Bleh.

As far as the trees blowing over, crazy winds indeed - but I blame all the rain for not giving the trees anything to hold onto. The ground was like soup. }:-(
