Catwoods, nice picture! 

We heard the first hummingbird of the season on Friday so I put the feeder out.  The next morning it was sitting on the deck with most of the juice gone and the bird bath was in the lilac bushes.  Mr. Raccoon was busy!  LOL, guess we'll be making sure to bring the feeder in at night.  Hmmm, maybe it was the raccoon pretending to be the hummingbird we heard!   Wink

The view on my walk yesterday encouraged me to walk a little faster, lol!  I did get home before it reached me.  It only sprinkled for a brief period and then the skies cleared back to blue.

Oh, that's an awesome picture!

Today I saw the blue violets were out in the ground cover at the PT building Smiley  And the tulips planted at Penn Tower were FABULOUS.  THey are the only tulips I've seen that were not trying to bloom right out of the ground.

 Cry   Here we go again.  Stay safe catwoods.  Sending good thoughts to everyone in the path of these tornadoes.  How sad and scary.

It's frightening how common this has become in the last 5 years. Sad

Today I'm worried for Mandycat and Trudy.  Who else is getting it?  Hopefully Mother Nature starts a nice long weekend tomorrow. Tongue

I have heard from catwoods this evening. She is fine, but had been without power since Monday, due to downed trees and power lines from a weaker (EF1) tornado that struck in their general area. They were in the possible path, but it missed them, fortunately. She's tired from coping with the power outage and the other results, sends her regards, and will post when she can.

This has been an absolutely awful weather week. Too bad the lull in the severe weather that started this spring could not have continued.

Except for buckets and buckets of rain, all is well here.  Lots of flooding all around the area, but we are, fortunately, in a very safe spot and our neighborhood is not prone to major flooding.  I had to go out today for a dental appointment and I felt like I would be doing better in boat rather than a car, but didn't have to travel too far.  The yard is a swamp, but no danger to the house.  I will be glad to see the sun again!  At least this wasn't the white stuff!   Tongue  I know that there are many, many people who have had very tragic experiences in this storm, so I am very lucky in that regard.  I am keeping those people in my prayers.  I feel so sorry for catwoods.  She has endured a lot in recent years with the storms and tornadoes.

Good to know you are both safe ! I hope everyone else starts checking in soon . We are fine here , many places near us are flooded but we are dry . It actually helped here by putting out the fires .

My area is prone to flooding, but not my apartment complex.  My mom's back yard is a swimming pool, but it didn't get in the house.

I drove over the Perkiomen Creek today.  it was not where it belonged.   Angry  And there were signs of minor flooding on many of the roads I took.  The Wissahickon was also not where it belonged because the radio announced that Lincoln Drive and Kelly Drive were closed due to flooding.  Glad I didn't have to go in that direction this morning.

I hope everyone is safe and can get some time to dry out before the next rainfall.

I'm relieved to see everyone's okay so far!  That rain amount is something else.

Glad to hear everyone is safe from the flooding and other storms. All the weather warnings give me a chill these days.

Fizzy, spectacular photo, what a view! I enjoyed reading about the hummingbird and raccoon, too.

Thanks, catbird, for letting everyone know we are OK, and thanks everyone for the concern! That last tornado (an F1 I believe) did some damage in town and then went aloft before it got out here. From the tree damage and noise descriptions, we figured it went right over a neighbor's house (the houses are far apart here, but still), and the map in the newspaper agreed, I heard. I haven't seen it yet myself. I am not pleased! I feel like we are playing whack-a-mole with tornadoes, and we are the moles!

Quickly, because there's a little storm rolling in, non-severe but I hate 'em all now Tongue, a picture:

I'm glad you made it through that, catwoods.  Storms are certainly not on my favorite things list!  I can't imagine what you go through now.

I hope good weather will prevail for the remainder of  this Spring!The storms in many  areas are horrible! We've had both warm ups and cool-downs/furnace still kicking on. At least the trees are no longer bare.
