I went to church last night and while in church I had my phone on silent. When church was over and I got in the car the first thing I did was check my phone. I had several missed calls and a bone chilling text from Craig that said a TORNADO just passed over the top of our house! I immediately started to shake in my shoes! I called Craig and was terrified of what he would have to report!
He watched the tornado come across the field where these building were destroyed. It is our county fair grounds. It was a large wedge tornado. He watched from the front porch until the wind was so great he had to go inside. He said the tornado was on a straight path for our house. He gathered the dogs and they went to the bathroom. He said he neverheard a noise like this in his life, he said it was like a train on top of the house. While in the bathroom he said the whole house shook, vibrated and made loud cracking noises. He said he expected the house to lift off the ground at any second! But it held strong!
Just a few hundred yards from our house the TORNADO lifted off the ground and passed right above our roof! As Craig went outside he said he expected the roof to be completely gone, but it was still there! God was defiantly watching over us! We had a few minor things damaged, but nothing we can't fix ourselves!
These photos are of the fair grounds right across the road from us.
This is the house at the end of our street.
It blew our RV off the blocks and turned it about 3ft.
Thought this was odd! Lifted this glass out of the table and gently placed it on the floor of the deck without breaking it! Most of the damage was under the porch.
While we were in Texas my friend Theresa Cano got invited to tour Rachel Ashwells B&B. She could bring 2 guest and I was lucky enough to get chosen for the tour!
The place is breath taking! My pictures don't even do it justice! It was rainy the day we were there and I can only imagine how lovely the place must look when the sun in shining!
Rachel and her assistant was our tour guides!
I've only shown the main house in this post! Guest cottages will come later! It was hard to take whole room pictures of the house because Rachel and her staff were staying there during the big show. So.......all of their belongs invaded most of the space!
I love to decorate! I love anything that has old crusty paint that is peeling and flaking off! I love architectural salvage! And last but not least I love RUST! I enjoy taking a piece of junk and turning it into something useful.
Craigsmith and I make a perfect team! If I dream it up, he can make it happen. He's very good at engineering something out of thin air! He knows I'm a perfectionist and it doesn't even bother him! We work very well together and between the both of us, the fruits of our labors make-up the business we call Time Worn Interiors.
