Yesterday morning the sky was a little bit cloudy but the weather man said the day would warm up to a perfect 76 degrees. Anything above that is too hot for me. So I slipped into my flip flops and headed out the door to work. As I made the 20 minute drive I could see the sun's rays penetrating through the clouds and imagined that there must be angels ascending and descending on each of them. It looked like the beginning of a beautiful day.

By noon the sky turned black and the heavens opened up to a torrential down pour. I love the rain especially an unexpected one but, my first thought was, " how am I going to make it to my car in these stupid flip flops." My car was parked about 50 feet from the building which isn't a long distance at all but, when you're not accustomed to wearing these slippery little things on your feet it can seem like a mile. Thankfully by the time I was ready to go home it had stopped and all the extra water had run off into the drainage.

This morning I woke up to the news of strange things that happened in the night. We have snow on Mt. Wilson (something that never happens this time of year) and a tornado set down somewhere in the Inland Empire that derailed a train. They say that this storm is going to last all weekend long which puts a damper on our plans but, that's OK with me. Now maybe I'll have time to finish those curtains that I started.

Ohhhhh I LOVE your header. May I ask, where did you get that type of header with the pretty roses on it. I soooo would love to find something similar.

Ok so that is so funny that we were so close yet so far away :0)
I left the house in sandals too on my long drive to orange county and moved deeper and deeper into the weird storm clouds, etc. What an interesting day. My SIL and her son drove from the March AFB area where the tornados touched down. They had a freeways diversion because of an overturned semi (fromt the tornado) and then they got pelted with hail. They did make it to Darya in time to eat with us. Blessings...

Cori- We were driving down to Whittier on Friday and heard about the storm! My husband's family is in the area. It was a strange weekend- cold and windy! We had a very nice holiday though. Thanks for the kind comments on my blog. I had a hard time choosing the template, all of them were so beautiful. Her site is on my sidebar at the bottom.
