Thoughts For This Thursday....

What a Thursday I tell ya! But let's rewind to Wednesday for a minute!

My Dad was in a bad car accident last night, he was t-boned twice, hit a tree and then a house in his work truck! A lady ran a stop sign, pushing him into oncoming traffic and screwing up his steering, which then sent him into the tree and house. Luckily he is okay, just a little sore!! Actually everyone involved was okay! I think that man is running out of lives though I tell ya! I will post the pictures when I get them! Crazy world out there! Drive safe please!

The weather yesterday was a bit extreme as well yesterday! Not as extreme as Alabama or other states, but it was pretty wicked here. There is tons of wind damage and a possible tornado touch down 20 minutes from my house! CRAZY! But we did get up to 22 degrees Celsius!!

Now as for today..

I got up early because once again I am working on a Thursday, which just happens to throw off my week! So as I am getting up, M's fire pager goes off for hydro poles down, fire started and well that is all I heard before he ran out of the house! Oh the trials and tribulations of being a volunteer fire fighter's wife! So I hopped in the shower and the power went out just as I was rinsing the conditioner from my hair! GREAT! So my hair is well-conditioned today and will need to be rinsed out tonight when I get home! It is sooo conditioned that my hair products are not really working, it seems to have just slipped off! Needless to say my hair is wavy today.

It is super duper windy. I decided I better leave early, as I am in clinic today and it is about an hour away. As I was leaving, M was coming home. He warned me to drive safe, as the wind was wicked and knocking down power lines, trees, etc. So I gave him a quick kiss goodbye and went on my way! What M didn't tell me to watch out for was flying objects, objects that do not normally fly, like SHEDS! Thanks to my defensive driving skills, I managed to avoid being hit by this big steel shed that blew across the road! For a minute I thought I was in the beginning of the Wizard of Oz (one my favorite classic movies). I saw several trees, hydro poles/lines, signs, and debris fallen all over the place! What a mess! I made to clinic and the power was flickering like crazy.

I finished up in clinic and headed back to the office, finding more trees, hydro lines and signs down. Crazy weather I tell ya!

I am pumped that Greys is back on tonight, as well as Private Practice I hope, presuming I will have power and satellite!

M and I have to go buy a new toilet tonight too, as M's is not working properly and we have a houseful of company coming on Saturday night for Card Night! I hope we can find one that we like for a reasonable price!

Also, please keep those caught in the storms in the states in mind and in prayer. Such a tragedy in Alabama especially!

I am linking up for What's Your Song again this week over at Goodnight Moon and Sarah @ We're Just Like You Only Prettier


This week I am picking "How Great Thou Art" by Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill! Enjoy!!! (Don't forget to pause the music at the bottom of my blog before hitting play, if the music on my page still works for you... I need to get a new player that will play in Canada)

I hope everyone has a great Thursday!!
