Tornado Tuesday

Okay, so it wasn't a bonafied tornado, but it did almost as much damage to my exterior holiday decorations! After spending about 5 hours this past weekend decorating the outside of the house for Christmas, a cold front blew in last night. Today we had hour after hour of unbelievable gale force winds that destroyed all my hard work.

As I looked out my office window I could see the wind howling and the trees bending mercilessly. I could also see the pine garlands dashing back and forth, hanging on for dear life.

By dinner time things seemed to calm down, and as I walked back to toward the house from getting the mail, I saw the garlands had been blown off of 9 of the 12 windows. They're strewn throughout the yard and wrap around porch. Also, 2/3 of the lights lining the porch roof were blown off and lay on the ground.

Damn. Sh*t. F*ck! All that work to put them up, now down the drain. Wasted time. There are few things that affect me like knowing I've wasted my time. I hate that!

Spouse asked me if I was going to pull down the rest of the lights and garlands or if I was going to put it all back up. "I don't know yet" I lied. I knew I was going to put it all back up again but I didn't want him to know proud I was of the 'finished product'. "I'm too mad right now to decide."
Guess I'd better take a look at the weather forecast to see if we have anymore tornadoes, hurricanes, typhoons, or tsunamis on the horizon.

Yeah, I hate the wasted time situations. Maybe you could just glue them on, lol.

Sorry to hear about what Jack Frost did to your wonderful decorations. But, as the saying goes "Sh*t happens".
