We had a real strong thunder storm,
lots of lightening and pouring rain!
Cleo was calmly sitting on a chair while
I frantically did all I could, as Mr Husband was
coming home in the storm...
(Later he thought he should of just stayed at work,
but then we would not have the story or the happy
return home, he miraculously dry by thinking of what ways to
take by public transit and buying a 5.00 umbrella from a street vendor
doing 'brisk trade' of them!)
First I lit all the lampadas and a blessed candle used in times of storm and other
troubles... and sought to pray... and asked others to pray also...
I lit the dinner candles at some point too...
Then I hurriedly made crepes, after getting our battery powered lantern out,
as really, the power could go out and indeed some lines were downed by trees,
blocking public transport.
Crepes made, table set, I waited for my Husband's texts about where he was.
And thankfully, thankfully!! Just 10 minutes or so before he got to the nearest
train station near us, the storm calmed and the water was draining away....
I had not been so thankful at Mr Husband's arrival!!
We feasted on the crepes and sausages,
and talked gaily about it all.
It is now one of the happy memories created by storm.
