The day was going fine until suddenly our pretty sun disappeared and a huge fast quick storm descended upon my house. (Imagine Winnie the Pooh singing "I'm just a little black rain cloud").
I go outside to see if I can see any down lines or what's going on. Well I walk in the back and something bites or stings me. My arm felt like someone just shocked it, the pain was awful. I try to shake it off, but by the time I get back to the house my arm starts swelling and is breaking out all around the area of attack.
I continue to try to shake it off, because I suddenly realize that it sounds like it's RAINING in my kitchen... hmmm. not a good sound to hear.
The kids are fighting over the 2 flashlights that we have, apparently they didn't think it was fair that I took the big one when I came inside.
I go into the kitchen and sure enough it's raining from one of the lights in the kitchen, (Don't worry since the electricity was out there was no electrical explosions.
Well a girl's gott know when to call it quits, so I call my dad he comes over, takes a look at my arm and says we have to go because it doesn't look good. Well, just as we were pulling out of the neighborhood MY ADAM shows up! HOORAY! It seems the electricity went out at his work (what a great first day.) Apparently he was in the middle of a root canal when the electricity went out.
So actually the whole day wasn't a complete disaster, it was just that everything went horrid for about 30 minutes.
Don't worry though everything worked out
- Our electicity just came back on!
- Adam's electicity is still out, so hopefully it will be back in the morning.
- The roof is fine, it was through a vent that we need to put flashing on
- Benedryl and Ibprofen helped with the swelling and pain
Let's hope for Sun tomorrow folks.
