Coming up for air/sun

Wow, 
We have had some fun weather lately in Arkansas...
I think it's rained for a few weeks straight, and I've never heard tornado sirens go off so much in the entire time I've lived here.  
 
Pretty scary.  
Several ancient oaks in our neighborhood were ripped from their roots or struck by lightning.
With all the devastation around us I feel so fortunate that the only damage 
we've had is a few leaky spots in the roof from hail and wind damage.  

Is that the sun?
 J's last soccer game was played by the river (never seen it so high) with half of the fields totally flooded.  He said "Mom, look at those geese playing water soccer."  We saw a boathouse and half a car going down the river, as well as a HUGE tree. Many schools in the county are still closed because roads are submerged.  

Yesterday was gorgeous.
The Old Statehouse (from our killing time walk during last night's rehearsals)

Today is too. 

I am enjoying it while I can!

I know that the flooding in AR. and in Missouri has been terrible...I can't even imagine. Sure makes you appreciate the little things in life.

What a beautiful photo of the sun emerging from the clouds! Parts of southern MN get flooded this time of the year. We are fortunate not to be in flood zones.

Oh my goodness, how scary! I am glad you are alright. I can't imagine how surreal it is to go about every day things while all of that is going on around you.

Your sun picture is really beautiful and moving.
