Wind, wind and more wind

If this is what it's like to live near the coast, you can have it.  I don't like wind when it's at normal levels, so this has just about made me wacko.  Some would argue that I already am a bit "off", but I only appear that way to throw people off balance a bit.  My husband says I'm goofy,  and I'm pretty sure that's one of the things he loves about me.   Back to the wind......turns out the wind and sideways rain we got, 3" of it, was not the worst of the storm to come.  The wind has steadily picked up speed all day and we lost power at work due to a large limb falling on a power line.  That's 2 power lines down in 2 days.  We had a tornado touch down near Racine, WI, and I'm thankful it didn't come any closer than that.  Janesville had a school close due to a portion of the roof coming off and a semi got blown over as well as an RV on the highway.  I'm sure the RV will be fine, they are made for roll overs....insert sarcasm here.
I am making a sheep costume for Halloween this year and am eternally grateful for the fact that tonight is not the night I have to go outside with clothes that have over 2000 cotton balls glued to it.  I'm hoping to finish up with gluing the cotton balls on tonight, I have purchased a new supply and I'm hoping what I bought will do the trick.  Once it's finished, I will get a picture and post it so everyone can get a chuckle out of completed project.   I haven't dressed up for Halloween since I was in my early twenties, before my son was born and decided that this was the year it was going to happen.  My husband will be the shepherd.  Originally, I was going to be Little Bo Peep, but I just couldn't talk my manly husband into being a sheep.  Lots of jokes would have been made and he felt like he'd have heard about it for the rest of his life.  So, I caved and decided to be the sheep myself and he thought a shepherd was manly enough for him.  *grin*
It might be a pretty neat idea to actually pose with one of my sheep while wearing the sheep costume.........hmmmmmm.
Stay anchored to the ground everyone......
TaTa for now.


  1. The wind was ferocious here in Indiana as well. A corn crib blew over into one of our neighbor's field where he pastures cattle and damaged part of his fence line. We only received one half inch of rain yesterday........
    I can't wait to see your sheep costume!
    Happy Halloween!

  2. We were lucky here and the winds are not quite so vicious today, so I'm hopeful that all of us have seen the worst of it. Glad all is well at your place.


He who angers you, controls you.
