Waiting for the storm....

   Well, its been almost eleven months since I last posted on this blog. Once again time has slipped away as if it were caught up in a raging river!  Many things found their way into those chaotic waters.... some literally torn from my grasp.  I find myself exhausted and a bit numb. So I've decided that it would be very therapeutic to return to my blogs, even if its just to post photos. 
   Sooooo..... I'm back!   And sitting here this evening waiting for the storm winds to arrive. And of course the rain. We're supposed to have LOTS of that. But we'll see... you never know for certain what a storm will do. Regardless of all the fancy equipment that the weather folks have!  Things can change in an instant!  Like everything else in life.
    My only real worry this time is the mulberry trees, especially the BIG one out on the corner lot. As you can see from the photos , it took another hit this Spring. Several medium size branches were broken and then the large one in the photo above. I haven't actually measured anything so its hard for me to explain just how BIG this is! Almost the size of the one that was twisted off last year.      These trees are awesome, but the wood is obviously fairly soft. And the fact that the limbs naturally droop downward and those big leaves are like boat sails!   Whew! What a recipe for trouble!
    I'm hoping and praying that there won't be any major damage this time.
