Yesterday morning we had a bad thunderstorm with a tornado that came really close to our house. We are all okay, thankfully, and only very minor damage: the glass panes in the French door leading to the back porch were all broken, all the upstairs doors out onto the front balcony blew open and the wind blew things around upstairs a bit but nothing broken, and a table and some potted plants blew off the front porch, along with a wicker love seat which flew sixty feet or so and landed upside down out by the fence. It lost its back in the fall, so now it's a love bench!
Our neighbors had a piece of roofing tin about the size of a door crash through their dining room window but nobody was hurt.
We are still without power so I'm posting this from my phone. Hopefully we will be back up today and I can post painting progress photos tonight.
